Amateurs at EWASS

I have just got back from a day at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science. Usually this is a conference just for Professional Astronomers. This year though there was a small session on Pro-Am cooperation and I was down there to give a short talk on spectroscopy. It was also a great opportunity to find out just what some of the professionals are up to. (There were over a thousand of them at the conference) I will be giving you the inside story at next Tuesday's meeting including the latest on ESO's proposed European Extremely Large Telescope, but if you want to keep up to date with the latest news, Astronomy Now are also blogging live from EWASS.

See you Tuesday
