Summary The International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009) is a global celebration of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture initiated by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and UNESCO. Through local, national and international events, the organization wants to help the citizens of the world connect with the universe through the day and night time sky. In particular, many of the activities are focused on the younger generations. The scientists involved in the project wish to instill in people a personal sense of wonder about the universe.
