MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, May 18th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. Following two monthly meetings with guest speakers, we return to programs by our own members. RVAS President, Michael Good, will recap the March 7th Triad Starfest (TriStar), with a special focus on the ex-cellent Dark Matter presentation made at the event. Dr. Clem Elechi will speak about his astrophotography tech-niques that produced the images that so captivated everyone during our planetarium program in January. Time permitting, we’ll also have

another of our monthly What’s Up and other activities.

Join us for the fun!
