Dear Web Master

I am Pouria Nazemi, Science journalist and head of public affairs of Astronomical Society of Iran- Amateur Committee (ASIAC).

ASIAC is a part of ASI that organized amateur activities in Iran and try to increase the level of Amateur Astronomy level in Iran.

As you now in recent years in Iran many astronomical groups try to celebrate astronomy day.

This year Iranian people celebrated International Astronomy Day on Friday May 5, because of our weekend is on Friday and Saturday in our country is first day of week (like many other Islamic countries).

So ASIAC gathered information of astronomy day celebration in all around the country and ask them to send these events to you but because of some groups have limit access to Internet and also because of this work is part of our mission in ASIAC our mission I send you with this mail list of all event that organized until now (Sunday 30 April).

In all events the groups will hold some different programs like general astronomy speeches, slide show, make models of space ships and solar system, play street theater about astronomy, open day in observatories, kid drawings , observation of sun, moon , planets and satellites, cook some astronomical cookie, gathering KEO messages and many more like these.
