Abstract

The start of the International Year of Astronomy was effectively delayed by one second due to the introduction of a positive leap second at midnight on 31 December 2008. True to astronomical precision, this leap second was actually taken into account at the IYA2009 all-night new-year starparty in Sutherland.
