Total Solar Eclipse Tour (Updated) - August 2017 - Meteor Crater, Mt Wilson, Lowell Observatory, Kennedy Space Center and more

Dear Members,

Two of our ASNSW members, Melissa Hulbert and Cathi Humphrey-Hood, have organised a tour to the US to see the Total Solar Eclipse on 21st August 2017. Based in Portland, Oregon, the plan is to view the eclipse from either Madras or Salem but it will depend on the weather conditions on the day. Tour dates are 10 - 22 August 2017. Highlights Include:
· Mt Wilson tour and night viewing on the 60-inch and 100-inch telescopes
· Meteor Crater including rim tour
· Lowell Observatory tour
· Kennedy Space Centre
· Smithsonian Museum

Simplified Renewals for Multiple Memberships (yours and "Related")

From 2016, a new field has been added to the Memberhip Renewal page to allow you to renew for any number of other related members (full, associate or student) at the same time as you do your own renewal. Note that this process is NOT automatic and database updates to the related memberships must be made manually by the treasurer. However, this does streamline the renewal process. You can now pay for yourself, related members, Wiruna sites and yearbooks all with a single transaction.
