It  is time, again, for Astronomy Day--an annual event dedicated to raise public interest in astronomy by providing interaction between the general public and astronomy enthusiasts, groups and professionals. The theme of Astronomy Day is "Bringing Astronomy to the People."

The dates for Astronomy Day this year are in the spring on April 28, 2012 and in the fall on October 20, 2012.  Around the world,  astronomical societies, planetariums, museums, and observatories are sponsoring public viewing sessions, presentations, workshops, and other activities to increase public awareness about astronomy and our wonderful universe.

You can find out about special local events by contacting your local astronomy club or planetarium. You can also find more about Astronomy Day by checking the website for the Astronomical League, and you can visit the Astronomy Day site here:
