IYA 2009-themed phone cards of Slovenia

I was glad to see many items being issued in collaboration with IYA 2009 - the International Year of Astronomy. In Slovenia, there have been a set of six astronomical phone cards, issued to celebrate IYA 2009. These six cards will definitely be a valuable collection of souvenirs, for anyone, who is interested in Astronomy and IYA 2009 in general.

The company behind the issue is "Telekom Slovenije d.d.". The Astronomical Phone Cards were designed by Borut Beri and the 6 cards feature stunning images of the cosmos. Among all the most attractive is said to be the card that features Whirlpool Galaxy, which is also known as Messier 51a, M51a, or NGC 5194
