This Day In History

An email from Steward Observatory, University of Arizona:

"I can not let this day pass without mentioning that the first celestial observation made with a telescope by Galileo Galilei was on November 30, 1609...exactly 400 years ago today!

"Galileo observed a waxing crescent Moon just after sunset. It was today's anniversary which prompted the United Nations to proclaim 2009 as the International Year of Astronomy."
