The President’s Message

To the Members of AOSNY Astronomy Club,

As we embrace the arrival of May, a month adorned with blossoming flowers and the promise of warmer nights, I am filled with excitement and gratitude for our shared passion for the cosmos. With each passing month, our club continues to thrive, fueled by the dedication and enthusiasm of our members.

This month brings not only celestial wonders but also an important milestone for our club—the upcoming election for leadership positions. As President, it has been an honor to serve our community and guide our endeavors in exploring the wonders of the universe. However, I believe strongly in the importance of fresh perspectives and new ideas to drive innovation and growth.

Therefore, I encourage each and every one of you to consider stepping forward and contributing your talents to our club’s leadership. Whether you aspire to serve as president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, or in any other capacity, your involvement is crucial to the continued success of our club. We are a diverse community with a wealth of knowledge and skills, and I have no doubt that together, we can continue to inspire, educate, and connect with our fellow astronomy enthusiasts.

In addition to the upcoming election, May offers a host of exciting astronomical events and opportunities for exploration in the northern hemisphere. From the peak of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower to the unveiling of the majestic Milky Way arching across the night sky, there is no shortage of celestial delights to behold. I encourage you to join us for our observing sessions, workshops, and guest lectures as we continue to deepen our understanding of the universe.

I am thrilled to announce that our upcoming general meeting on May 5th will feature a special guest speaker, Brother Guy Consolmagno, the Director of the Vatican Observatory. Brother Guy is a renowned astronomer and a leading authority in the field of astronomy and faith. His insights and perspectives are sure to inspire and enlighten us all.  During our general meeting, we will also be distributing the AOS Cosmic Award certificates to our deserving recipients. These awards recognize outstanding contributions and achievements within our astronomy community, and I encourage you to join us in celebrating the recipients’ accomplishments.

Furthermore, mark your calendars for Astronomy Day at the Cradle of Aviation on May 11th, located in Garden City, NY. It’s a wonderful opportunity to engage with the broader community and share our passion for astronomy. Let’s come together to inspire curiosity and wonder in the next generation of astronomers.

As we embark on this new chapter, let us remain united in our shared love for astronomy and our commitment to fostering a welcoming and inclusive community. Together, we can chart a course toward even greater achievements and discoveries in the realm of the cosmos.

Thank you for your continued support and participation. I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events and to the bright future ahead for our club.

Clear skies and best wishes,

Jason Cousins, President
