IYA 2009 has begun!
The stroke of midnight at the beginning of 2009 marked the international launch of IYA2009. In Brazil, fireworks resembling stars, comets, planets and other cosmic objects lit up the sky over Rio de Janeiro. The Dawn of IYA project got underway with the largest coordinated solar observation project in history. The Cosmic Diary was launched with over 50 professional astronomers blogging online. The 365 Days of Astronomy projects began its run of daily podcasts.

Trinidad will begin its IYA activities with several astronomy and science groups launching media events, public observing sessions and awareness campaigns. Check the events calendar for a full list of IYA2009 events in Trinidad.
