|The next meeting of the Richmond Astronomical Society will be on Tuesday, July 12, 7:30 PM at the Science Museum of Virginia. RAS member Tom Stepka will speak on flat vs. curved space – how they differ and how observations can characterize the curvature of the universe. 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.
Thanks to Jerry Hubbell, Myron Wasiuta, Linda Billard and friends from the Rappahannock Astronomy Club for the great presentation on remote observatory construction and operation at the last meeting. Jerry and Linda have co-authored an excellent book on the subject available at this link.
