MAS Monthly Meeting – Chuck Allen

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST

he MAS will be hosting a hybrid in-person & ZOOM Monthly Meeting.  MAS meetings are free and open to the public. JOIN US!

Featured Speaker: Chuck Allen (Astronomical League)

Topic: Andromeda!

Chuck Allen will present our March program on the Andromeda Galaxy. The program covers Andromeda’s remarkable historical role in expanding our universe beyond the boundaries of the Milky Way and in unlocking the nature of the universe itself. Chuck will discuss a rather surprising February 2024 discovery regarding Andromeda’s mass and another discovery of the only planet ever detected in another galaxy. The program will also provide insight into Andromeda’s size, structure, black hole, unusual globular clusters,  principal satellite galaxies, host of smaller companions, key features, true and apparent size, and ultimate fate. 

Chuck Allen is current League Vice-President and a past League President (1998-2002). A League Lifetime Member, he founded the National Young Astronomer Award in 1991, received the G. R. Wright Award in 1998, holds the League’s Master Outreach Award with over 500 programs to his credit, and is a gold-level Master Observer.

Chuck served as Co-Chair of ALCon ’21 Virtual, coordinates three League Observing Programs, and is program director of the Evansville Astronomical Society. He is also a past judge for the Intel (now Regeneron) International Science and Engineering Fair and served as a US Air Force officer before entering the practice of law.

You can probably hear best with a headset but your computer’s speaker and microphone will also work.

Dialing-in with a phone:

  • Meeting ID:  813 6447 5719
  • Passcode: 105590
  • Number: +1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago)

In order to ensure the most success we are asking everyone to follow a couple of rules:

  • Don’t turn on your camera – it sucks up bandwidth and we really don’t need to see you.
  • Keep your microphone muted until you are prompted during a question and answer session during the presentation. This will cut down background noise substantially.
  • You can request to ask a question in the chat area of the Meet and wait to be prompted by the moderator.

We hope you can join us.
Clear skies!
