The GAM 2014

Global Astronomy Month, (GAM) each April is the world’s largest global celebration of astronomy since the unprecedented International Year of Astronomy 2009.

Each GAM brings new ideas and new opportunities, and again brings enthusiasts together worldwide, celebrating One People, One Sky.

In April 2009, the 100 Hours of Astronomy (100HA) Cornerstone Project of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009) showed what the astronomy community can do working together. As the first truly global outreach event, amateur astronomers, clubs, science centers and others held events by the thousands around the world, attracting the largest public audience ever. The excitement was contagious as this unified global event, encouraging everyone to look skyward, swept the world.
Everyone wanted the excitement to continue, and now it will. Not just repeating 100HA, but something even bigger, built on 2009’s global success.
Global Astronomy Month is Astronomers Without Border’s response. New ideas, new opportunities and more participation. Connecting people around the world in these events will create an even greater sense of sharing, just as in AWB’s motto and the slogan for GAMOne People, One Sky.
The global outreach community’s enthusiasm and innovation was critical in making 100 Hours of Astronomy successful, and GAM will continue to bring together all that tens of thousands of enthusiasts worldwide have to offer.
