WHAT IS YURI'S NIGHT?
THE WORLD SPACE PARTY
Launching parties around the world every year on or around April 12th,
in commemoration of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human venture into space on April 12, 1961,
and the inaugural launch of the first Space Shuttle on April 12, 1981.
We celebrate all that humanity brings with us as we explore the cosmos: music, art, science, culture, and each other!
We use space to bring the world together, to empower the greatest parts of who we are, and give vision to where we are going.
Join us and rock the planet by planning an event or finding an event.
Since the year 2009, the KITION PLANETARIUM & OBSERVATORY as the National coordinator for Astronomers Without Borders in Cyprus,
organizes outreach events to celebrate the acievements of Yuri Gagarin.
