ALCON 2019 @ HOLIDAY INN TITUSVILLE
Jul 25 – Jul 29 all-day

The Astronomical League was organized on November 15, 1946 under the leadership of Dr. Harlow Shapley. At present, the Astronomical League is a federation of 280+ astronomical societies throughout the United States and several foreign countries. It is one of the largest general astronomical organizations in the world.

National Conventions take place yearly in various locations throughout the country over a four-day period starting on Wednesday and usually end with an awards banquet on Saturday. There are lectures/presentations and workshops scheduled mornings and afternoons each day, astronomy related tours of nearby facilities, and a vendor area. These conventions provide a unique opportunity for professional astronomers to intermingle with knowledgeable amateurs; gathering together to learn from each other and exchange ideas.

Join the Astronomical League to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing! ALCon 2019 will be held at the Holiday Inn Titusville – Kennedy Space Center, in Titusville Florida. The itinerary is listed below in the Schedule section of this website. In addition to the lectures/presentations, social events: the Star-B-Q and Gala Awards Banquet this year are the tours available at the Kennedy Space Center, and three-day cruise to the Bahamas on a ship by Royal Caribbean.
