There's nothing like the holidays.
And there's nothing better to kick them off than the annual ASRAS holiday party at the Strasenburgh !
As usual we had a wide assortment of fabulous goodies to munch on before the meeting in the main star theatre.
Our program featured lots of volunteer recognition, followed by a very cool star show featuring some of the darker mysteries of our universe, and finally the members images show.
This year astronomer of the year was long time member Lori Englund :
We also recognized outstanding volunteer efforts from :
Joel Schmid once again outdid last years show with all kinds of special effects, rocket blastoff, and a wonderful presentation of outstanding members images.
What a great way to start off this years holiday celebrations.
Special thanks to Steve Fentress for being such a gracious host and making everyone feel welcome.
Thanks Steve !
