Retreat day at Camp Astronomy

Like every institution, Astronomy magazine has a few traditions. One of them is to set aside a day each year with our editorial and art staffs to get away from the office and think a bit about our magazine and our website. It‘s the kind of thing that helps us evolve the products in the best way possible and bring you everything we can for your enjoyment of the astronomy hobby.

Friday, October 14, was this year’s day of retreat. We packed up, took the whole enterprise to my house, spread ourselves around the room, and talked and talked and talked. We had breakfast pastries, orange juice, coffee, and fruit, and talked some more. We had pizza for lunch (a departure from the usual boxed deli sandwiches) and talked some more.

When the day reached mid-afternoon, we called it quits on the most successful retreat we’ve ever held. The staffs came away with numerous exciting ideas and plans for the coming months, both in print and on the Web.

I expect you’ll be seeing the first of the fruits of our labors very soon. Stay tuned.
