SUMMARY: Astronomers from around the world have descended on Sydney, Australia for the 25th general assembly of the International Astronomical Union. Around 2,000 astronomers will be in the city to attend the event which will cover a vast range of topics, such as "Young Neutron Stars and their Environments".

During this event, astronomers are announcing all kinds of discoveries, so don't be surprised if Universe Today is a little bigger than normal and astronomy-focused for the next few weeks. I'll try to stay on top of it as much as possible.

If you're in Sydney, let me know how it all goes.
