Indonesia: International Year of Astronomy

The International Year of Astronomy was a year-long celebration of astronomy that took place in 2009 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the first recorded astronomical observations with a telescope by Galileo Galilei and the publication of Johannes Kepler's Astronomia nova in the 17th century. The Year was declared by the 62nd General Assembly of the United Nations. Many countries issued stamps dedicated to this topic, and Indonesia is one of them. This stamp set is issued on 2.5.2009.

Stamps arrived in this cover, but stamps are not canceled. Stamps on cover:
Five Year Development Plan (from set of two), issued on 1.4.1990.
Bridges (from set of three), issued on 3.12.2017.
Visit Indonesia Year (from set of four), issued on 1.1.1991.
Olympic Games in Barcelona  (from set of five), issued on 1.6.1992.

Inside cover was also this card, about saving and releasing orangutan in Borneo.
