Astroexpeditions (Macedonian: Астроекспедиции) is a project оf Shared Knowledge that seeks to improve existing and create new articles about the sites of astronomical significance of Macedonia, as well as creating high-quality images of the phenomena of our galaxy (the Milky Way) as they appear to us.

The places covered by the project are selected on the basis of the following criteria:

  • number of articles on the Macedonian Wikipedia related to the locality and the constellations that can be observed from there;
  • number of different images on Wikimedia Commons related to the said locality and constellations.
