Monthly PAS President's Message
May 2017 President's Message
I am the current President of the PAS.
As I write this I am just back from the Deep South Spring Scrimmage. The weather this year was...mixed. We know every spring (for the Spring Scrimmage) and every fall (for the Deep South Star Gaze) that we are at the mercy of the weather and that can be quite frustrating for those that look forward to these events primarily for clear, dark nights. Thursday during the day looked quite promising with dark blue skies and comfortable temperatures for planning the night's activities. Solar observing during the day was very good with Helios having a few good sunspots. After dinner some high level cirrus clouds moved in and blocked various parts of the sky during the course of the evening. In spite of this we were able to get some observing in for 4 or 5 hours.
