  • Astronomers Without Borders (840)
    Astronomers Without Borders, is a site that espouses to put forth the outrageous idea that we are all human, and we all enjoy the SAME SKY. And rightly so.....our sky is the exact same sky that is seen and enjoyed from all of Europe, Asia, the entire northern hemisphere down to around Brazil and Peru, since they are about as far south of the equator as we in middle America are north of the equator. There may easily be a significant portion of the public at large that has never stopped to ponder such things. The same sky that Iranians and Iraqis revere, is also our sky, as well as for northern Africans, Vietnamese, Micronesia, Siberia, and Tibet.

    No religious, ethnic, governmental or "human designated" borders are what the Astronomers Without Borders are about. An idea that brings all races, all beliefs, all of mankind together, as a single group known as homo sapiens, who all inhabit and share similar responsibilities as evolved inhabitants of this tiny rock located in the third orbit from our Sun, our star.

    Check it out. The mission of Astronomers Without Borders is much the same as our own mission, to share what we know and love about astronomy with all who wish to know more about the same. In the "brotherhood of mankind" say hello to a few of our "brothers" from around the world.
