Is the AAS bigger than the IAU? I did hear that this AAS is looking to the the biggest ever, though.

Are they going to make Pluto a planet again?

I saw your eclipse poem on the eclipse mailing list.

amy - i always thought the IAU was bigger, but in the last AAS mailing, they described this meeting as potentially the largest ever meeting of astronomers. the IAU general assembly meetings are only every 3 years, so maybe that has something to do with it? or maybe they just meant in the US, i dont know.

OCC - probably not
