The Forsyth Astronomical Society will host their next monthly meeting on May 23rd at 7:30 PM at Kaleideum (formerly Sciworks) in Winston-Salem. The program this month will be by Joseph Holmes, a recent graduate of Guilford College, rising graduate student at Appalachian State University and long-time volunteer at GTCC’s Cline Observatory. Joseph will be speaking about current developments in the very dynamic field of exoplanet research. Following the presentation portion, we will have a brief business meeting and as always, there will be an informal social gathering 30 minutes or so before the meeting. All meetings are open to the public, free of charge and all are welcome. Hope to see you there.
A reminder to club members: It’s getting to be that time again, we are coming up on the May renewal for annual dues. You can pay them at any meeting between this month and May. Another reminder, also, as per a club vote a few months back the dues are now $35/year for individuals, $40/year for a family membership and our student rate is still $5/year. For anyone else, if you have ever wanted to join our organization now is the prime time to do it. Don’t forget to renew your Astronomical League membership as well if you participate in that group. Don’t know about the Astronomical League ask club member Sean Wood, the FAS AL correspondent.
