The Global Astronomy Month is a set of scientific outreach activities organized by Astronomers Without Borders in partnership with: Global Astronomy Month, The International Astronomical Union (IAU / UAI), Yuri’s Night, Group of Astronomical Studies of Iguaraçu – PR (GEAI) and with all the other clubs and groups of Astronomy scattered around the World.

The main goal of this month is to join the whole of humanity to go out every day to contemplate the beautiful and wonderful morning, evening and evening sky and mentally cross the distances across the seas and join all the observers of the heaven in the whole world, to prove that our world is: “One people under one sky.”

There will be various activities: Lectures, Music (FlashBacks International and National), Video Classes, Workshops, Exhibitions of Images and other objects and equipment, besides of course several public astronomical observations (Morning, Evening and Night of several celestial bodies: Moon, Planets, Stars, Agglomerates, Nebulae, Galaxies, etc.) if the weather is favorable.

Come and bring your friends, relatives and anyone else you want to bring to participate and learn together with us about this wonderful event for the scientific dissemination here in our county, region, state, country and the world in which we will inform to everyone in general about everything that is happening now in our Solar System and in the Universe as well.

OBS: In case of rain or totally cloudy sky the astronomical observation is automatically delayed, and even though it is hot and cold, it is good to wear or wear warm clothes and blankets (Nights and Cold Mornings), hydration and repellents during the activity that we will perform if atmospheric conditions are favorable to the contemplation and realization of one of the biggest astronomical events of the year of 2019.
