ASA 2008, Perth WA

The annual meeting of the Astronomical Society of Australia was held this July in Perth, WA. I've never spent much time in Perth, so it was good to spend a little time over there. The UWA campus at Crawley is beautiful, right on the shore of the Swan river, and with fantastic architecture and gardens. We stayed at St. George's College, which is also very picturesque, and backs onto King's Park. The meeting was very well attended and a lot of fun. I gave an invited talk on searches for spectral features from radius-expansion bursts observed by RXTE
