CARINA and IYA 2009

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has launched 2009 as the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009) under the theme “The Universe, Yours to Discover”.

iya_logo_med.jpgIYA2009 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first astronomical observation through a telescope by Galileo Galilei. It will be a global celebration of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture, with a strong emphasis on education, public engagement and involvement of young people, with events at national, regional, and global levels throughout the whole of 2009. For more information on IYA2009, visit www.astronomy2009.org .

CARINA has been designated the Specific Point of Contact (SPOC) for Trinidad for the implementation of IYA2009. Working in collaboration with astronomy enthusiasts, corporate sponsors and local scientific and educational organisations, we have planned an exciting calendar of events designed to bring the fascination of astronomy closer to thousands of people, young and old, across Trinidad and Tobago.

More information on IYA 2009 activities can be found in the following brochure:
