I just found out.
2009 is the International Year of Astronomy – a year-long, worldwide public celebration of astronomy, marking the 400th anniversary of Galileo pointing a telescope to the sky. Check out this website to find national sites that include more details about events happening in your country to celebrate astronomy – http://www.astronomy2009.org/.
