Stephanie A. Snedden is an American astronomer at the Apache Point Observatory of the New Mexico State University in New Mexico, United States; the minor planet 133008 Snedden is named after her. She has published papers including The Case for Optically Thick High-Velocity Broad-Line Region Gas in Active Galactic Nuclei. Snedden gained her BS from Sonoma State University in 1983, her MS in physics and astronomy from the University of Nebraska in 1995, her PhD from University of Nebraska in 2001. Snedden studies the physics of active galactic nuclei the structure and kinematics of gas in the broad-line region. Snedden appeared on Nova, in the 13 April 2010 documentary Hunting the Edge of Space: The Ever-Expanding Universe. Ahn, Christopher P..

Ayukawa Station is a railway station in the city of Yurihonjō, Akita Prefecture, operated by the third-sector railway operator Yuri Kōgen Railway. Ayukawa Station is served by the Chōkai Sanroku Line, is located 7.4 kilometers from the terminus of the line at Ugo-Honjō Station. The station has one side platform, serving one bi-directional track; the station is unattended. Ayukawa Station opened on August 1, 1922 as a station on the Yokojō Railway, which became the Japanese Government Railways Yashima Line on September 1, 1937. On that date, it was renamed Ugo-Ayukawa Station; the JGR became the Japan National Railway after World War II. The Yashima Line was privatized on 1 October 1985, becoming the Yuri Kōgen Railway Chōkai Sanroku Line, at which time the station reassumed its original name. A new station building was completed in December 2003. National Route 108 List of railway stations in Japan Media related to Ayukawa Station at Wikimedia Commons
