Hello Astronomy Section!
Join us in person at our dark sky site, the Marian and Max Farash Center for Observational Astronomy, in Ionia NY for our June monthly membership meeting this Friday. See directions on our website:
or use this address: 8355 County Road 14 Ionia, NY.
We intend to do a virtual simulcast on zoom, and will be trying out a *brand new* microphone setup to improve the audio. If you have a question/comment and are present in person, please raise your hand and wait for a microphone to come to you.
I will be out of town for a family commitment, but the group is in great hands, as Mark Minarich has volunteered to lead the meeting.
Our Feature Speaker is our own Bob McGovern who will be presenting on ASRAS Equipment at the Farash Center. If you are newer to the group, Bob is an ASRAS Outstanding Astronomer, one of our top solar telescope users, and is a regular contributor anytime there is work to be done. He served as our site manager at Farash for many years (overseeing the construction of many of the buildings/pads you may enjoy today!). There will also be some short stories “from when you were a new ASRAS member.”
Come early to socialize or set up telescopes (current forecast for Friday looks slightly cloudy, with a full moon). As always, visitors are welcome and encouraged.
Virtual availability: You may share this link with known friends & family but please do not post this link on Facebook or any other social network!
