2011 National Astronomy Week

Aside from February being the love month, we are also celebrating the National Astronomy Week (NAW). This is a week long celebration of different Astronomy societies in the country. This year, the theme is: Astronomy Transforming the Culture of Learning Toward Nation Building.

The NAW was conceptualized by Edwin Aguirre and Imelda Joson of PAS. It was formalized as a celebration by Pres. Fidel V. Ramos in Presidential Proclamation No. 130.
