May Newsletter HOT OFF THE PRESS !!!
Apr 24, 2020 - 1:49 PM - by Terri Finch
Come one, come all - pick up your copy of the newest edition of the Phoenix Astronomical Society PAStimes Newsletter... now - HOT OFF THE PRESS!

The May 2020 issue of PAStimes is ready for your download & reading enjoyment! Here's the link to grab a copy -

I wish to thank those who helped with this month's issue of the Newsletter...
Don Boyd is the Editor and puts a lot of time into making these newsletters as accurate & interesting as possible.
Cheryl White is our Newsletter Article Proofer. She puts in many hours proofing the articles and making sure they read smoothly.
Terri Finch is the Associate Editor and takes care of many facets of the prep work for the articles and photos that will be included in each issue.

PAS Members are wanted for additional Newsletter assistance.

Don is looking for an assistant editor or 2 to take Terri's place.

The Assistant Editor duties would be:
* Gather all articles for NL
* Format all articles the same
* Keep a list in Google Docs for the Editor of which articles are more important to be in the next issue
* After Editor has NL assembled, proof the NL for the layout / format of the newsletter

And the Photo Editor duties would be:
* Gather the photos submitted for the NL
* Make a list in Google Docs of all the captions needed for each photo
* If a caption isn't provided for a photo, make one up based on the article
* Include date photo was taken (if this data isn't in the article, or if article spans more than one day)
* provide Photo Credits for each photo that's to be used.
Formatting of photos may include cropping, enhancing, discussion with Editor about provided photos.

If you are interested in taking on one or both of these positions and helping Don with the Newsletter over this next year, please drop an email to Terri at to be added to the elections Agenda. This position is open to PAS Members only. Don & Terri will train you for the position you take.

Update about May 7th PAS Meeting
Apr 14, 2020 - 12:41 PM - by Terri Finch
The PAS Meeting of May 7th has been changed from a physical meeting at PVCC with a guest speaker to ....
A remote meeting, for PAS Members Only, through Zoom, same bat time, same bat channel.
The meeting will be for PAS members only and their immediate family member. PAS requests only one log in per household as there is a 100 log in limit to attend the meeting.
Please read about how to attend the meeting in the May PAS Newsletter here: The plan is to have the newsletter posted to the site no later than Sunday May 3rd.

And see details about the meeting at the Meeting Link here:

And by end of day May 6, the goal is to send out the Agenda for the meeting with the instructions on how to access the meeting through Zoom. Please do not share these instructions with anyone who is not currently a PAS Member.

The deadline to submit topics for discussion at the may 7th Meeting of the Minds will be Monday May 4th, end of day. Send your agenda items to Terri

And We will hold PAS Elections at this meeting. If you wish to nominate an Officer, or continue for another year as the Officer position you currently have, or pass your current Officer position to a new face... then this meeting is for you. The plan is to have Elections first, and then have the Meeting of the minds.

The meeting is currently scheduled to start promptly at 7;30pm and go to 9:45pm, but if we finish before 9:45pm, we will close the meeting at the finish time. You do not have to stay for the whole meeting, unless your topic hasn't been discussed, so if you need a earlier time for your topic to be discussed, please mention that in your email to me with your agenda item so I can try to have that topic discussed earlier in the evening so you may depart when needed.

Log in to the meeting will begin at about 7:20pm with Eric as moderator. Pop in, have a chat before 7:30pm with who ever meets you there before the meeting begins. Come and go as you need to, from the meeting.

Hope to see you there!
Terri, Event Manager
