Welcome
MAS
Members

MAS lkogo

March 14th, 2016

It's with sadness that we announce that the Melbourne Astronomical Society has decided to disband. However, the good news is that the current members of MAS are now part of the Brevard Astronomical Society.

We are planning on conducting additional meetings for all BAS members old and new on the nights that F.I.T. holds their Astronomy Lecture Series. The location is still to be determined for the meeting, but we will adjourn to the F.I.T. Engineering building when the meetings are over.

We hope that this will give our BAS members in the Southern part of Brevard county more opportunities to participate in BAS meetings and events. This is an opportunity for all of us to reach out encourage those who have been less active in both organizations to re-join us and further enhance the education and outreach of our members and those who ask us to participate in their star parties and events. We will be contacting those organizations who have enlisted MAS in the past and encourage them to continue with our organization.

As past members of MAS, we would like to thank all Presidents past and present of MAS and all those who have served in this wonderful organization. We are also encouraging the "Student Astronomical Society" (SAS) of F.I.T. to continue to partner together with BAS on activities and events as well. Those members who MAS still has on their rosters receive a free membership to BAS for the remaining 2016 and 2017 calendar year. Please let us know if you have not been contacted.

If you have any further questions about the merger of these two wonderful organizations, please contact us. We will be discussing this in greater detail at our next BAS meeting March 16th at the EFSC planetarium in Cocoa.

Thayne Saunders - BAS webmaster.
