2012 was the year for the Richmond Astronomical Society to host the annual conference of the Virginia Association of Astronomical Societies. Thanks to the great speakers, the vendors, the RAS volunteers, the participants, the Heart of Virginia Scouting Council and most of all to Betty Wilson and Ken Wilson for all their work in planning and coordinating the event. Betty masterfully handled planning and coordination down to the last detail and Ken invited and coordinated our slate of fine speakers.  It was a great event and it simply would not have been the event it was without everyone’s help and participation (image courtesy of David Medici). Click on the image to the left for a short slideshow of the event or click here for a short video.
