Since 1939 astronomy and space science courses have been offered at the university level in Egypt at the Department of Astronomy and Meteorology, Cairo University. This paper will discuss astronomy education in Egypt at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The astrophysics research groups at Cairo University and Helwan Observatory are interested in the fields of solar physics, binary stars, celestial mechanics, interstellar matter, and galaxies. The paper will also discuss the Egyptian response to two total solar eclipses (February 25, 1952 and March 29, 2006). The results of observations and photos will be discussed.
