365 Days of Astonomy

If you haven't heard, 2009 is the International Year of Astronomy, and the IYA team has set up a site for daily podcasts about astronomy, 365 Days of Astronomy, which has a feed in LJ through 365astropod. The podcasts run about 10 minutes each and are all voluntary submissions. Some are by professionals, some by amateurs (a lot of astronomy gets done thanks to amateurs, BTW). I encourage anyone who is the least bit curious about science, astronomy, or the universe we live in to listen along.
