NOVAC’s general meeting will be held on the campus of George Mason University on Sunday, May 3rd. We will meet in Research Hall Room 163 at 7:00 p.m.

If you’ve recently done some public outreach work, or if you’ve had a particularly good observing session lately, please consider taking a few minutes during the meeting to tell other members about it. Or perhaps you’ve gotten a gadget you’d like to talk about briefly? This sort of participatory discussion is a lot more engaging than a dry recitation of upcoming events, so we’d like to encourage it where we can in the business section of our meetings.

Our guest speaker this month will be Alberto Bolatto. The topic of his talk with be: Radio Astronomy with the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA).

In addition, I’d like to extend an invitation to our usual pre-meeting dinner this month. We’ll meet at Brion’s Grille (in University Mall across from GMU at 10621 Braddock Rd) on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. The pre-meeting dinner is an excellent way to meet other club members, welcome newcomers, and renew old friendships.

I hope to see you there!

Clear skies,

Terry
