IYA2009 Closing Ceremony : It's now all over

Here concludes the IYA2009, I was lucky enough to catch up the last part of the show as the current came back, and I also lost the recovery of previous session of recording, as the current suddenly went down.. the recovery with camtasia failed..

Catherine at the last moments of IYA2009 Closing Ceremony !!

OK, here is Robert Williams new President of IAU, bidding farewell to IYA2009, with his speech !! Well of course, Franco Pacini should be thanked for if it had not been his idea, there wouldn't have been an IYA !! I remember how Catherine Cesarsky the former president of International Astronomical Union, thanked him even yesterday during the 1st day's session at the IYA2009 Closing ceremony. Thank you Franco so much !!

Well now it's Catherine  who was elaborating on the legacies of IYA2009, many of the Cornerstones as well as Special projects will continue, I hear that Cosmic Diary will keep being written. Good news for you guys Lee !!

Here I also got Lee with a quick chat via Facebook, !!

Ladies & Gentlemen, you are now witnessing ,Catherine unveiling a new logo, Beyond IYA !! much like the old IYA2009 logo, but a difference !! A clear difference, beyond IYA2009 logo, Did I sound like an announcer ?

Franco, Robert and Catherine ! The Bosses of IYA2009 all together !! What a joy !!!
