About the Images

In each row, the image as it appears in the banner is shown on the left. All but one have been cropped and some have been brightened. The original image is on the right.

Some of the images show people or activities associated with the CSWA, while some show men and women astronomers interacting collegially or noteworthy moments for women in astronomy.
