Astronomy Day 2006

Today (6th May) is Astronomy Day - part of Astronomy Week. The aim of Astronomy Day is to "bring astronomy to the people," so there are many events organised to allow people who may never have looked through a telescope to see what all the excitement is about. Although the day is mainly based in the US, it has spread to several other countries. Check out the link for events taking place near you. However, the UK is not one of those involved in the project this year, so we'll just have to wait until 2009 for our next Astronomy Week.
