If you're in New York this weekend, come check out the Northeast Astronomy Forum, the largest gathering of amateur astronomers in the United States. David J. Eicher
Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to Suffern, New York, to attend the Northeast Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC), on Thursday and Friday, and the largest annual gathering of amateur astronomy in the United States, the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF), on Saturday and Sunday. As always, it will be a pleasure to see many of you there, and Jeff Felbab, Astronomy’s ad manager, will be along for NEAF, with our new and large booth set up. Please drop by and say hello.

I’ll be delighted to be speaking Saturday on comets, announcing the winners of the Comet ISON Photo Contest that Astronomy held with the National Science Foundation and with our sister magazine, Discover, and joining Garik Israelian to make an announcement about the upcoming Starmus Festival.

I’ll also be covering both meetings for the magazine and our website, blogging daily, and discussing a multitude of projects with many of you on site.

If you’re in the New York area, I encourage you to stop by at NEAF — I’ve blogged previously about the many events and speakers, and it will be a grand time.
