International Year of Astronomy

2009 is the 400th anniversary of Galileo's first public demonstration of the telescope, and the International Year of Astronomy.

So in addition to "drink beer" and "eat vegetables" (but only vegetables I can identify), I've added "look at the sky" to my list of New Year's Irresolutions. I spent a lot of time looking at the sky as a child (I got yelled at a lot for setting my alarm clock for the middle of the night), but not so much after I graduated from college and started living in cities. I'll have to see what's going on around here.
