Last year, Alan Traino, one of the driving forces behind the Northeast Astronomy Forum, left that great telescope show and began his own in Tucson, Arizona. Called the Arizona Science and Astronomy Expo (ASAE), the new event is held in November and is planned to be an annual show, with exhibitors, talks, and more fun of all kinds in what is undoubtedly the astronomy capital of the United States.
This year’s show will be held at the Tucson Convention Center on November 16 and 17. I’m delighted to say that Astronomy magazine will be co-sponsoring ASAE, and I’ll be on hand to talk to attendees and to be on a panel discussion about comets along with my friend and comet discoverer David Levy.
I’ll keep you posted as more details of the event roll out. Until then, I look forward to seeing you in Tucson!
