Visit Astrobites at AAS 218 in Boston

The citizens of Boston enjoying the city's ever-pleasant weather.

This week will host one of the most important events on any American astronomer’s calendar: the annual summer meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS). The 218th meeting of the AAS will take place in Boston, MA from May 22-26th. The meeting will be chock full of excellent talks and poster presentations on new scientific results, space missions, facilities, instruments, and the state of the field. Ellie wrote about attending the previous AAS meeting in January.
