Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Greetings fellow astrophiles,

The Astronomical Chronicle for June 2012 is available for download below:

June 2012 Astronomical Chronicle

This issue includes information about the Venus Transit (more below) and an article first published in the Syracuse New Times in May of 2001 about Karl Schultz, a long-time member of the SAS who passed this past 21 May 2012. The SAS thanks the New Times for allowing the reprinting of the article to bring new members “up to speed” on some of our society’s history. Also, the Venus Transit is still officially on for June 5th as detailed in the blog post below. The official flyer is as follows for the event. Stay tuned to the SAS page on Tuesday afternoon for final confirmation.
