I believe that you all, the scienceblog community is aware that Last year 2009 was the in International Year of Astronomy, abbreviated as IYA2009 in alphanumerical characters.

2009 was acclaimed by UNESCO and IAU and approved the International Year of Astronomy, as it completed 400 years for the discovery of Telescope by great Italian genius, Galileo Galilei, back in 1609.

Much things happened in 2009 in commemoration of this and it was a worldwide celebration, in general with the universal theme, “Universe, Yours to Discover”
