StarPeace events are joint public star parties that two or more neighboring countries held at the same time on one night.
Groups in neighboring countries hold joint and public star parties in regions around their borders according to geographical conditions of the region. Although political border has separated people of the countries, observers look at the sky simultaneously and the sky joins them. Furthermore, scientific speeches, workshops and astronomical photo exhibitions may be established at the same time depending upon activity potential in the place.
Who will organize StarPeace events?
Astronomy clubs or societies who registered on StarPeace website will organize StarPeace public stargazing parties. You can find the name of these clubs here.
This project may be done in all countries with shared land border, but they are divided into two categories according to the public star party program. In the first category there are countries which have no free border, so public star party is held in a place near the shared border of the countries so that people of both countries are joined by the sky. The second category includes countries with free border; people of both countries are gathered together in zero-border point in a night to improve their connection in the sky as well as earth.
To cover all countries worldwide, StarPeace project recommends countries limited by their water border to choose a night by cooperation of astronomy groups of other country with the same situations to observe the sky, so that infinity of the sky and freedom of water join their countries. It should be noted that countries limited by their water borders should be geographically near each other so that they can observe the sky simultaneously for some hours.
Societies who are interested in holding StarPeace should register their society, the place and time of the event in StarPeace website and after holding the event they should send a report with photos, movies, etc. to StarPeace core team with this email email@example.com .
