2009: International Year of Astronomy

2009 is the International Year of Astronomy.

Remember when you were a kid and you found planets and comets and black holes cool? Guess what: they still are. Like many areas of the knowledge it seems that the more we look – and looking is something we’re learning to do better all the time in astronomy – the more questions we find.

Here are some of the neat things going on this year. Why not put a couple in your calendar now?
