Richmond Astronomical Society

Panorama 1e The next meeting of the Richmond Astronomical Society will be on Tuesday, May 13, 7:30 PM at the Science Museum of Virginia.  Please join us for the meeting and, if you can, for dinner at Arby’s across the street from the Museum about 6:00 PM.

Randy Tatum captured this really cool picture of a 22 degree arc around the sun on Friday.  More information about the formation of these arcs can be found here.

A review of the latest Staunton River Star Party appears in our blog at this link.  The weather was uncooperative this time, but the park staff and CHAOS did a great job!

  1. Hello,
    I planned a meetup (about 27 people scheduled to join us) to come out and view tonight’s transit. I know the event is atmospheric condition pending.
    Where and by when can I get a notification that the event has been cancelled or will continued as planned?

    You are more than welcome to post directly on our meetup wall for the event, or to contact me directly.

    Thanks very much for making astronomy so appealing to the masses ! :)
