About Astronomy Day Astronomy Day is a grass
roots movement to share the joy of astronomy with the general
population - "Bringing Astronomy to the People." On Astronomy Day,
thousands of people who have never looked through a telescope will have
an opportunity to see first hand what has so many amateur and
professional astronomers all excited. Astronomy clubs, science museums,
observatories, universities, planetariums, laboratories, libraries, and
nature centers host special events and activities to acquaint their
population with local astronomical resources and facilities. It is an
astronomical PR event that helps highlight ways the general public can
get involved with astronomy - or at least get some of their questions
about astronomy answered. Astronomy Week is the same concept as
Astronomy Day except seven times longer.
