This ASP 2017 conference will help us all look “beyond the 2017 eclipse” as a follow-up to last year’s conference, which focused on how best to engage all underserved communities in the 2017 solar eclipse. Join us four months after the August eclipse to share outreach efforts that worked best and discuss what could be improved, not just for future eclipses, but to inform other astronomy education and outreach activities striving to reach diverse audiences (e.g., science festivals, urban/rural STEM initiatives, etc.).

The invitation is open for all to participate in this conference even if you were unable to attend last year.

Annual Meeting Sponsor: National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)


The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation, operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc. The NRAO provides state-of-the-art radio telescope facilities for use by the international scientific community.
