Welcome


MONTHLY MEETING—“Summer Solstice ‘Ice Cream’ Social,” June 19th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke.  The RVAS is providing the cool treats (and bottled water) as we celebrate the changing seasons with our annual Ice Cream Social.  So, bring your favorite toppings and enjoy an evening with your stellar friends!  While treating our palates, member Bert Herald will tickle our fancies with "Some Astrophotography Lessons Learned: Part 2," the continuation of his saga begun last month.  We’ll also have our usual monthly segments, plus plenty of “open mic” time for those who’d like to share an Astro-subject, photos, gizmo or whatever with the group.  Be sure to join us for the fun!
