Randy's Ramblings: And the Survey Says . . .
By Randy Johnson, SAS President
Like what the United States census is currently doing for the country, it's time for the SAS to get a handle on the status and needs of our membership.
We are also hoping to gather specific information for a club budget to plan the allocation and stewardship of SAS financial resources. This is not real exciting astronomy business, but it is important to the health and viability of the club. When you receive the survey, it would be most appreciated if you can complete and return the form as soon as possible.
Dark Skies Northwest Survey
We hope that by educating the general public about sky darkness, the case for better lighting can be advanced. We want to make people aware that this is an area for their concern.
You can help with this survey by reporting the visibility of stars selected for the sky survey in the constellation Ursa Minor, the Little Dipper. For information about the sky survey, contact Karl Schroeder at 206-362-7605 or by e-mail at Kschroe225@aol.com.
