“Beauty Without Borders”
timeanddate.com is a proud supporter of Global Astronomy Month.
In April 2021, people across the world are joining together to celebrate the Universe. It's the 12th edition of Global Astronomy Month, led by Astronomers Without Borders—a non-profit organization dedicated to “building and cultivating community through astronomy”.
timeanddate.com is proud to support this event, which encourages everyone to go outside, look up, and share the sky. One of the highlights is a campaign called “Beauty Without Borders” to mark a conjunction of the Moon and Mars on the night of April 17.
