General Meeting and Holiday Party

Grace Community Church, 1290 Minesite Road, Allentown
Saturday, December 10, 2 p.m.

(The snow date is Sunday December 11. Watch this space for updates!)

Get ready for some Holiday cheer and brain-teasing fun! Bring a dish or dessert to share in seasonal celebration with your Astronomical fellows. Also sharpen your pencils (and your brains) for the first-ever LVAAS trivia contest, featuring Dave Melman, host of Wednesday Trivia Night at Jack Callaghan's Ale House. And start thinking of a funny name for your team! (The best one is worth an extra point.)

Members and guests will form teams of up to 6 players and answer 5 rounds of 10 questions each. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place.

The 2017 Astroimaging Calendar is available! Copies will be available at the Holiday Party for $20.00 each.

Also, don't forget that it's time to renew your membership! You can renew at the Holiday Party, or at any time by downloading the renewal form here and sending it in with your dues.

THE LEHIGH VALLEY AMATEUR ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY -- 620B East Rock Road -- Allentown, PA 18103 -- 610-797-3476 --


Founded in 1957, the Lehigh Valley Amateur Astronomical Society (LVAAS) is one of the oldest continuously-operating amateur astronomy organizations in the U.S. The mission of LVAAS is to promote the study of Astronomy and to maintain a meeting space, observatories, and a planetarium.

LVAAS operates two astronomy sites: The South Mountain site in Salisbury Township is the headquarters of the Society. It has a planetarium with a Spitz A3P projector, a 21 foot dome, meeting space, the Red Shift store, library, workshop space, and three observatories. The Pulpit Rock site near Hamburg is LVAAS's members-only dark sky site. At 1600 feet above sea level, the site features five observatories and a pad for member's scopes.

Members who receive training on the scopes may obtain keys to the observatories. LVAAS also maintains a rental "fleet" of telescopes that members may rent at low cost. Members also receive access to The Observer, our online newsletter, as well as reduced subscription prices to Sky and Telescope and Astronomy Magazine. If you want to learn more about astronomy and LVAAS, please join us at our next public star party.
