Photos from the 224th AAS Meeting in Boston Are Now Online
Our photo gallery from the 224th AAS meeting, held 1-5 June 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts, is now online at http://photos.aas.org. If you attended the meeting — or even if you missed it — you'll enjoy perusing the many hundreds of fine images shot for the AAS by Imelda Joson and Edwin Aguirre of Joson Images.
You can get an overview by just looking at the Highlights gallery, which includes some introductory text and about 50 representative photos with captions. Want to dive deeper and see more photos? There are six folders to explore, each containing multiple galleries:
- Prize & Invited Talks
- Press Activities
- Receptions & Gatherings
- Exhibit Hall & Posters
- Town Halls, Workshops & Policy
Every gallery has a brief description, but most of the photos lack captions, as it would be impractical to write so many.
Here's a slide show featuring selected images from the Boston meeting, which was held jointly with the AAS Solar Physics Division (SPD), Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD), and Historical Astronomy Division (HAD):
If you see a photo you like and want to grab it for your own website or for other personal use, that’s fine — just click on it to bring up the biggest version available, then right-click (or the equivalent) and choose “Save Image As...” (or the equivalent). We are looking into making it possible for users to download higher-resolution images and order paper prints.
While you're at photos.aas.org you can also view images from January's 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC. We will soon add galleries for the 222nd, 221st, and 220th AAS meetings held in Indianapolis, Long Beach, and Anchorage (the first meeting shot by Joson Images), respectively. We’ll create galleries for photos from some recent Division meetings too. You can find some photos from earlier meetings, though generally without much information about them, on Picasa, which we no longer maintain.
We welcome comments on, and suggestions for, our online photo gallery; please send them by email to Crystal Tinch.
