The 8th National Fair in Popular Astronomy ... 29 October-1Nov 2009, Constantine, Algeria... World Space Week 2009 ... International Year of Astronomy 2009 .... Popular Science in Action   

World Space Week coincides with both the launching of Sputnik I in October 4, 1957, and the adoption of the declaration on the peaceful use of space on October 10/1967
Traditionally, our Astronomy Salon coincides with the World Space Week. This year again, we will hold it a bit later yet ithin the month. Few years ago it was the October 3rd, 2005 annular eclipse, the year before, it was election day, and those past years it is the fasting month of Ramadhan. Holding the events during that month with its different activities social wise is a no go, in addition to the fact that most of the members of the various associations would not be able to attend. We were thus left with the option of delaying it a bit. Then it has become a tradition to use the November 1st weekend to hold it since it is convenient to the various Algerian Associations for attending.
We do organize a special event during the space week itself.
