Live-Streamed Astronomy Presentations & Events
Richard Fienberg, AAS Press Officer

To limit the spread and severity of the coronavirus outbreak, many AAS members and others are working from home and practicing other types of social distancing. In addition, many institutions and organizations are moving colloquia and other events from on-site to online, making them accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
As a service to the community, the AAS is compiling a list of live-streamed astronomy presentations and events — both those intended for professional astronomers and those intended for a wider audience.
Thanks to Peter Teuben (University of Maryland), the list is also available via an RSS feed.
Is your institution or organization webcasting astronomy talks or other events of interest to astronomers or the public? If so, we'd love to have you add the relevant information to our listing to help spread the word!
