Some of this year's marquee speakers include astronaut Dorothy Metcalf-Lindenburger, planetary scientist Heidi Hammel (Space Science Institute), and astronomer Neta Bahcall. Many activities will be available for families, including solar observing and evening telescope demonstrations.
As a final note, this morning hundreds of astrophotographers kicked off the Northeast Astro Imaging Conference. The sold-out event features lectures from some of the biggest names in astroimaging. I'm here in the crowd, so keep an eye on this site for highlights from some of the presentations.
