Ventura County Astronomical Society Holiday Message

To all VCAS Members and Friends:

I want to make this brief since the Holidays are Nigh 🌠

2019 was an astronomical year for VCAS. Public Participation and donations were at an all time high due to our theme for 2019: 50 Years Since Apollo 11. Before I announce our theme for 2020 let me give one last push to 2 major events:

3 – Lastly, Our theme for 2020

There are no huge events in astronomy in 2020, not like this year with the Apollo 50th Anniversary Celebration.

However: There are plenty of Women who are unsung heroes in astronomy both past and present

Also… 2020 is the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage.¬† So we’re tying the 2 together:

In Recognition of 100 Years Of Women’s Suffrage

Ventura County Astronomical Society Celebrates

The Women of Astronomy

Bear in mind that VCAS is an Astronomy Club. However, this year [2019] we celebrated the accomplishment of 3 men who would never have succeeded in landing on the moon if it weren’t for the dedicated work of thousands of individuals; many of them women. Next year [2020] we will focus on the unsung women Heroes in astronomy.

Join Us in this celebration. We kick off the year with Dr. Christine Corbett on Friday, January 24. She’ll let us know how we, both young and old, male and female, can contribute to big data astronomy from our own PCs and even smart phone. I’ll see you there at the Moorpark College Forum.

1 Favor I ask of you: Let us know how we’re doing. We’re always looking to add value to your membership. What would you like to see VCAS provide for you in 2020? And if you don’t mind, please chime in on our theme for 2020.
