Finally, the IAU centenary celebrations have arrived. The 100 Hours of Astronomy event took place 10 - 13 January 2019 with more than 1200 astronomy activities taking place in more than 85 countries worldwide! Following this, set of events the Women and Girls in Astronomy Day took place on 11 February, and more celebrations are still to come. These upcoming events include the Dark Skies event around the International Day of Light on 16 May, the 100th anniversary of the Eddington solar eclipse, the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing, the national campaigns of NameExoWorlds, and many more. I recommend everyone checks the IAU100 website so as not to miss the chance to promote astronomy in your community this year.
