Feb 15 -- Galileo Day
Why celebrate Galileo? Galileo was a truly inspirational scientist. Like Darwin, the ideas he put forward, though correct, were met with large amounts of controversy and resistance from the Church. However, he stuck to the scientific method and followed the conclusions the evidence led to. Of course, like Darwin once again, he was eventually vindicated, though unfortunately not within his life time. He spent the last years of his life under house arrest under orders of the Church. The best way to celebrate Galileo Day is with a traditional feast. Invite your friends round, knock up a slap-up meal and toast to the man himself. Given Galileo's area of work it is also highly appropriate to go star gazing on this night. Have a search round for your local astronomy society and have them organise something, or, if you happen to have a telescope yourself, organise a dinner and star spotting evening.

Mar 10 -- International Day of Planetariums
The International Day of Planetaria (IDP) was born in Italy in 1995. Conceived by the Associazione Amici dei Planetari, it became truly an international day when other planetariums in Europe joined in the celebration. Today it is celebrated in Italy, Great Britain, Russia, Australia, Croatia, the United Statesas, and other countrires as well, and hopes are that it will continue to grow and encompass the globe. Many locations use this day as a kick off event or the culminating day of a week of special programming and activities for the public.
