The next meeting of the Richmond Astronomical Society will be on Tuesday, May 10, 7:30 PM at the Science Museum of Virginia. Please join us for the meeting and, if you can, for dinner before the meeting about 6:00 PM at Chicken Fiesta across the street from the Museum.  (Since the nearby Arby’s has closed, we are trying out a new place for our pre-meeting dinner.  Feedback is welcome.)
