Burbank Sidewalk Astronomers


The Sidewalk Astronomers are a public service amateur astronomy association. All Sidewalk Astronomers events are for the public. They take telescopes to the public--on street corners, public parks, in front of bookstores--wherever there are crowds of people.

2009 is also the International Year of Astronomy. Their mission:
The vision of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 is to help the citizens of the world rediscover their place in the Universe through the day- and night-time sky, and thereby engage a personal sense of wonder and discovery. All humans should realize the impact of astronomy and basic sciences on our daily lives, and understand better how scientific knowledge can contribute to a more equitable and peaceful society.
Find out about telescope making, astronomic photography, and upcoming events on the Burbank chapter's website, or follow this link to their calendar page.
