received the Bulletin for June

The monthly Bulletin of the RASC arrived my inbox.

I was pleased to see it, for a few reasons.

Jenna, the Exec Dir, provided an update on staffing. She had realised in our discussions that it was something important to relay to members and other committee volunteers.

It was good to see some information on solar eclipse glasses ahead of the 2024 occultation. Centres and organisations can pre-order now.

We learned that over 200 members and guests participated in the General Assembly.

Dark sky preserves are to be highlighted on the RASC social media channels.

Of course, I was keen to see the latest report from the Observing Committee, primarily to recognise the efforts of members completing their visual observing certificates. 9 people in the first quarter of 2023. From British Columbia to Newfoundland Labrador. Good stuff!
