MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, September 19th, 7:30 p.m.,

Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke.  

Ranging from musings about the curvature of the Universe to what the

evening skies have in store for us to more about gear for connecting with the

sights of the season, our September meeting features a variety of activities led

by our President, Dan Chrisman, and several RVAS members.  We’ll also have

more on last month’s ALCon, the October 29th VAAS convention, Night Sky

Network coordination, a ton of upcoming RVAS outreach opportunities and

the low-down on what members have been up to since our last meeting.  Join

us for the fun!

Registration is now open for the Virginia Association of Astronomical Societies 40th annual conference on the campus of Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia.
