In 2015, GalileoMobile will embark on yet another astronomical adventure: Constellation

This project will bring together schools from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru to create a South American network of schools committed to bringing the exciting world of astronomy closer to their students. The students will be able to explore the wonders of the Universe by taking part in “Space Exploration”, a series of astronomical outreach activities created especially for this project. Through the network, they will be able to share their passion for the sky with peers from all across South America. Their schools will also benefit from the long-term support of GalileoMobile when independently organising astronomical outreach activities in the years to come.

The IAU has decided to officially endorse Constellation as a Major Cosmic Light programme of the International Year of Light 2015, and the Office for Astronomical Development has decided to officially sponsor about 30% of the entire project!
