IYA2009 kickoff webcast

January 14, 2009

Today we got an interesting all-roe email which I though I would share with the blogosphere. You have probably noticed that this is the International Year of Astronomy. Tomorrow there is an official Opening Ceremony in Paris. The press release is here. But much more fun, you can follow it on a webcast, available Jan 15th from http://www.astronomy.org/webcast.

There is also a fun new “Cosmic Diary” web site. This includes a blog by Staff Writer Lee Pullen, and you can track the Opening Ceremony action on his blog. (Is there a Twitter, does anybody know ??)
