Here at the FAS, we want to extend a Happy New Year to our friends and followers. Our calendar for the 2018 season has been posted. Most of our basic events are settled, but we still have to finalize the schedule for our Stone Mountain events before posting. There are a few changes we are undertaking this coming year. Most notably, we have changed our monthly meeting date. We will now be meeting the second Wednesday of each month. Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, January 10th at 7:30 pm at Kaleideum North. This month, two of our members will share their experiences from a long astronomy vacation to the Atacama desert in Peru. Attached are some of the amazing pictures from that trip.
