Thus far the IYA2009 has been an astounding success. In a press release from the IAU (International Astronomical Union) marking the six-month milestone of the IYA2009 on 1 July 2009, it was stated that over a million people have already looked at the sky through a telescope for the first time. Even more are newly engaged in astronomy. This is just one of many achievements, one of countless ongoing projects and planned initiatives. The indications are that the IYA2009 is well on the way towards achieving many of its goals.
