NOVAC’s general meeting will be held on the campus of George Mason University on Sunday, February 8th.  We will meet in Observatory Tower Showcase 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 Greg Redfern, who will give a talk on the future of manned space flight. 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.

 

* Note the location change for this month!
