RAS participated in a special observing session for Governor McAuliffe, his family, and staff at Staunton River State Park. The Governor dedicated the observing field as a Dark Sky Observation Area. More here.

Our next monthly meeting will be on Tuesday, June 13, 7:30 PM at the Science Museum of Virginia.  Mike Lico will present on the Apollo 1 accident in honor of the 50th anniversary of the tragedy.  We will also have another in our series of astrophotography tips. Please join us for the meeting and, if you can, for dinner before the meeting at Chicken Fiesta across the street from the Museum about 6:00 PM.
