Commenced in 2004, STAR PARTY is an observational astronomy competition where school students groups from all over Sri Lanka compete on the fields of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology and Rocketry. This year it’s been organized for the 6th consecutive year.

STAR PARTY 2009 will be the largest IYA 2009 project of Sri Lanka, taking place at the premises of University of Peradeniya, Kandy, Sri Lanka from 6.00 pm (local time) (12:30 UTC/GMT or 08:30 EDT) onwards on 25th September 2009. The project will last for more than 12 hours and already 500+ participants confirmed for Star Party.

The event is jointly organized by the Anandian Astronomical Association, of Ananda College and Astronomical Society of Mahamaya Girls’ College, Kandy.

In highlights for this year’s event, there will be a live video streaming of the event via http://starparty2009.com/sp-09-live/ The live feed is especially aimed at educating the global community about the event and enabling everyone to better understand the universe, following the IYA general theme “Universe is Yours to Discover”.
