Places Connected to the Sky

This Project aims to raise awareness of how astronomy represents a rich and significant aspect of cultural and natural heritage. It also encourages the general public worldwide to engage with their local astronomy-related places and to explore other sky-related locations as part of a global collection that will be available on the UNESCO–IAU Portal to the Heritage of Astronomy.

For anyone interested in participating, they are invited to gather information about a location that relates to the sky that they wish to see in this collection. The user can then create an account on the Portal to the Heritage of Astronomy website where the proposal can be submitted for review by the UNESCO–IAU Portal team. Approved locations will be published on the portal.
