    The LAS welcomes anyone interested in astronomy to visit us at the Urban Astronomy Center (UAC) located in E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park for our monthly Star Party. Tonight we can observe the waxing gibbous Moon three days before it is full!!

    Members may arrive early for set-up. If the ground is wet, we will set-up behind the building on the asphalt. Scope set-up is weather dependent. Our scopes are unable to penetrate the clouds and heavy moisture such as rain drops are bad for the electronics.

    • UAC-Urban Astronomy Center

    This monthly meeting will be a little different from the usual! As allowed by the LAS bylaws, the meeting date for May has been changed by LAS President Ken Alderson to Saturday, May 26 at 8:00 PM at the Urban Astronomy Center. This change was approved by a unanimous vote of the Board at the May 3, 2018 meeting.

    This will NOT be the annual election meeting . Per the bylaws, three quarters (9) members of the board were present at the board meeting. It was decided by a unanimous vote of the members present that the annual election meeting will be held at the December meeting in order to assure a quorum and to match our financial year. The existing board will continue until then.

    As required, notice is hereby given to all LAS members that Article 3, Elections, Section 1 has been changed to: “Shall be held annually at the December general membership meeting.”

    A members only cookout will be held starting at 6:30 PM. The LAS will provide hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. Bring a side dish and $5.00 to cover costs. 

    Afterwards the entertainment really gets going at the 8 PM meeting with an Astronomy Quiz presented by member Greg Miller. So cram, cram , cram and put on your thinking caps and show everyone your astronomy knowledge! For those of you who are newcomers to Astronomy and the LAS, this can be a fun learning event!

    And finally the monthly meeting will overlap with the monthly UAC Public Night so bring your scopes out to show the night sky to the members of the public!
