MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, November 12th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom B, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. (Note change of date.) Our featured speaker for the November meeting is RVAS member Frank Baratta. Frank will present “Mapping the Milky Way,” a talk about the structure of our gal-axy, including stages in the development of our understanding, current conceptions, orienting ourselves with-in this structure and where some familiar and not-so-familiar deep sky objects are actually located. And we’ll also have our latest updates from members on observing and outreach activities, a Star Gazers Online episode and other Society news and business items. Join us on the 12th for an enjoyable and informative evening!
