Well, this is the first blog post that I'm publishing after 2 months. I'm really sorry about the absence of updates and news as i was really busy with University academics and AIESEC work. This post is about the Astronomy camp that we conducted for the Asian International School (AIS) last 18th of March

I'm now gonna blog about an event that we had in our University almost 2 months back. I'm really sorry guys for dragging this such longer due to the busy schedule I've been undergoing last few months due to various reasons. Hope you don't mind me sharing in so late. Anyway here it is...

Watch Total Solar Eclipse 11th July 2010 Live Streaming from EclipseBlog

IYA2009 Commemorative Coins Issued by Many Countries Worldwide

As the title of this post hints, there were lot of countries involved in this worldwide celebration during 2009, which was the 400th anniversary of both the discovery of telescope for astronomical observation by Galileo Galilei and the publication of “Astronomia Nova” by Johannes Kepler. These were the reasons which were prominent in specifying 2009 as the IYA.

A Tribute to Fiami the author of The Lives of Galileo

I have already made a post about Fiami, and his great gift that I received during the Christmas season. I got many great feedback on that and even my friends wanted to read it, as none of them had the comic book with them, So I thought of doing a youtube video featuring Fiami

Happy New Year to you and all the best for you in 2011 & beyond

It's 2011, at the moment here in Sri Lanka, although these are few countries still waiting to join us in 2011, which will of course take place in the next couple of hours.

Happy New Year to you and all the best for you in 2011 & beyond

I wish you all the best in 2011 and may all your dreams come true in 2011 and beyond. Let's hope there will be more adventures in terms of astronomical expeditions and explorations. Of course now we know Curiosity is scheduled to be launched in late this year, for advanced studies on Martian habitability. I think this decade will be crucial for the ambitions in later years.

In the meantime we are very close to the Gianluca's January Stars coming up on the 3rd evening, and I am up to it.

By the way 2011 is also the international year of Chemistry, seems like a lot of happenings will be there too...

So guys, let's hope for the better...
