AstroWright Group Science at #AAS225

I wish I could be back in my hometown of Seattle, but alas, this year it was jus too much stress on my schedule to attend.  Still, there is lots of AstroWright group science there.  Here it is, day by day:


Poster 138.20: Cedric Hagen presents a new project with Brendan Miller, Greg Henry, me, and others on stellar activity cycles.  We’ve got decades of photometry and activity now; we can learn a lot about where the Sun fits in among “Sun-like” stars.
