“We’re amazed by how fast Astronomers Without Borders has achieved truly global reach,” said Southern Stars Group founder Tim DeBenedictis. “It’s not just AWB’s roots in amateur astronomy that impressed us – it’s their unique focus on sharing a common love of the night sky to bring people in different cultures and continents together. AWB’s mission fits in perfectly with our motto: mobile astronomy for everyone. I can’t imagine a partner we’d be more pleased to support.”
