Does anyone from collectSPACE plan on attending this years Stellafane convention in Springfield, VT (home of the Simpsons)? If so, you should consider attending a pre-Stellafane conference called the Hartness House Workshop coordinated by John Briggs and myself. A little more information about the event...

Continuing a series begun in 2009, this year's Hartness House Workshop will focus on historical and modern aspects of solar astronomy. The program will include two lectures by leading historian of astronomy Dr. David DeVorkin of the Smithsonian Institution.
