Saturday was the general meeting of the Riverside Astronomical Society, so this is how my day went.
This was the view Saturday morning out at Landers, CA. before I left for the meeting.
This is the Moon coming up (at 3:30) in the afternoon right before I left for the meeting (after doing some work on my observatory).
Frank (the current President) opening up the meeting.
Our outreach director showing the upcoming public events.
Our star party director updating us on the next one!
Our imaging organizer speaking about an upcoming imaging conference (at the next star party). Unfortunately, my camera focused on the Chairman of the Board for the RAS. He announced an opening on the Board that needs to be filled. Any takers?
Our membership director updating us on the status of the club.
Now for the fun stuff. Our Chief Observer giving his presentation on the sky this month and other interesting astronomy issues.
One of our members giving a presentation on the constellation of Eridonus (the river).
The ladies that present our prizes before half-time.
Our guest speaker Professor Aaron Barth giving his talk on Supermassive Black Holes in Active Galaxies: The View from Lick Observatory. It was fantastic.
Sunday morning, a spectacular sunrise to cap off a great day.
