International Sidewalk Astronomy Night

Started in 2007, International Sidewalk Astronomy Night has become a regular event for sidewalk astornomers worldwide. Most of us are out on the sidewalk many nights each year sharing views of the night sky to the public, and one night a year we celebrate this activity and make it an international event. Many people held their first sidewalk event during ISAN and have continued doing sidewalk observing. That is our goal, to get as many people out with a scope as possible because once they do, chances are they will like doing it and continue. In this way, maybe someday we can show all the people of this planet the Universe in which they live.
