Welcome

MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, July 17th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke.   RVAS Member John Wenskovitch, who’s pursuing his PhD in computer graphics and information visualization at Virginia Tech, returns as our featured speaker for this month’s meeting.  Witty and engaging, John will be sharing with us his recent experiences as a presenter at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science conference in Prague, Czech Republic.  Among the evening’s other activities, we’ll likely be voting on the election of our officers for the new year (see page 2 of the Society’s July newsletter), and we’ll have our monthly What’s Up? Program, outreach updates, announcements and observing reports.  Join us for the fun!
