The latest production from SARM is an Intercontinental Astro-ecologic Verse Tournament dedicated to 100 years since Victor Anestin founded the first Romanian astronomical society (presided by Admiral Vasile Urseanu) and 90 years since he started to eternity.
The project also celebrates 15 years of existence of the Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy-SARM (the second national astronomical society in Romania’s history), organized by Valentin Grigore (Founder of SARM) and Andrei Dorian Gheorghe (Project Coordinator).
