International year of Astronomy 2009

This year, 2009, has been declared the international year of Astronomy.

To quote, from the IYA2009 website, "The International Year of Astronomy 2009 is a global effort initiated by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and UNESCO to help the citizens of the world rediscover their place in the Universe through the day- and night-time sky, and thereby engage a personal sense of wonder and discovery."

Maybe this year I will finally buy that telescope I have always wanted.
