Nibiru Sociedad Astronomica


Nibiru Sociedad Astronomica

Nibiru-Astronomical Society (Spanish: Sociedad Astronomica) is a non - profit academic and student astronomical society created at the Faculty of Sciences (UNAM) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 2001.

The goal of the Society is to create a channel linking students studying physics at the Faculty with astronomers at the Institute of Astronomy (UNAM).[1] This is achieved through year - round semestral astronomy related activities such as conferences, courses, movie debates,[2] planetary observations through telescopes and outings focused on archeoastronomy.

On March 24, 2009, Nibiru opened up a new astronomical society at the Metropolitan Autonomous University in Azcapotzalco (Mexico City), known as Nibiru UAM. The UAM served as a hub for student-academic astronomical activities at the north of the city until April 2010. A new astronomical society derived from the pilot program, as intended.

It has performed several important observations[3][4] on astronomical phenomena, such as solar & lunar eclipses and has been noted on several national newspapers and television stations for its activities.[5][6] It has also toured several faculties at the University,[7][8] creating awareness on astronomy and light pollution through telescope observations of Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the Orion Nebula.


Several important Mexican scientists from the UNAM have participated in conferences[9] on cosmology, general relativity and astrobiology organized by the Society:

In 2009, it is assisted Mexican authorities on activities celebrating the International Year of Astronomy, becoming the astronomical society with the biggest number of events nationwide.
