VIRTUAL MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, May 18th, 7:30 p.m. Our May monthly meeting will continue the virtual Zoom gatherings begun in April and participants will again be limited to Society members.  This month we’re anticipating the meeting to be more extended in time, providing the opportunity for additional activities, including a featured program.  RVAS President Michael Martin will be our speaker and he’ll be offering us an “Introduction to Astrophotography.”  Along with Michael’s program, we’ll have our monthly “What’s Up” sky review, plus member observing and related reports, and Society updates and announcements.  Watch for the email meeting invitation and instructions for signing in.
