Pedro Russo, Mariana Barrosa, Lars Lindberg Christensen

The International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009) is a global collaboration between nations and organisations for peaceful purposes – the search for our cosmic origin, a common heritage that connects everyone. The science of astronomy represents millennia of collaborations across all boundaries: geographic, gender, age, culture and race, in accordance with the principles of the UN Charter. This report outlines the status of the principal projects and activities that make up the Year.
