Due to the measures and guidelines set forth by local, state and federal government agencies, we have temporarily suspended in-person ASKC meetings and offsite events.
June General Meeting (Zoom Webinar)
NOTE TO MEMBERS: The 2021 Board of Directors election will be finalized at the June meeting. Please attend via Zoom and check in to be counted toward the quorum for the election. We need all the members we can get in attendance, and we can't count those viewing on Facebook!
The Astronomical Society of Kansas City’s featured speaker for the June General Meeting on June 26, 2021, is David Baron, journalist, author, and broadcaster who has spent his thirty-year career largely in public radio. David has visited every continent and earned some of the top honors in journalism. He is an avid umbraphile who has witnessed seven total solar eclipses. His presentation is on his book, American Eclipse that tells the story of pioneering planet hunter, James Craig Watson, astronomer Maria Mitchell, and inventor Thomas Edison who gathered in the West on a day in 1898 when the sun hid and far more was revealed.
Non-members are welcome to watch the meeting and presentation via Facebook by going to the Astronomical Society of Kansas City’s Facebook page where you should be able to join the LiveStream at 7:00 PM or later. We do not currently have the means to accept questions from viewers via Facebook at this time.
The meeting format will be very close to the usual live meeting. We will continue to use the webinar format until the time comes when we can all safely meet together again at Royall Hall.
The next General Meeting will be held at 7:00 PM CDT on July 24th, 2021. We anticipate this will be virtual meeting as well. Please check back for updates.
