ALCon. Hosted by the Minneapolis Astronomical Society.
The annual national convention of the Astronomical League assembles amateurs together from around the country to rub shoulders with magazine editors, research astronomers, authors, university professors, as well as officers of the Astronomical League and partnering organizations. Attendees listen to and speak with people well versed in outreach, equipment, imaging, club improvement, youth in astronomy, the art of observing, and the science of astronomy. Amateurs will have the very best “discovery” experience.
