The Summer Triangle – part 1

The night sky is a collection of patterns known as asterisms which, when connecting the dot (stars) takes on the shape of objects, people, and animals. The larger boundaries of each asterism make up the individual constellations. The summer triangle is the connection of three bright stars from three completely different asterisms. To the far left we have the star named Deneb or the tail of Cygnus the Swan.

The Executive Director manages the daily operations of The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. This includes activities related to our charitable mandate, publications, and member service. Our current ED, Deborah Thompson has served us well, and has chosen to take a leadership role at another not-for-profit organization in a few weeks’ time. We wish her the best and thank her for nearly four years of service.

In this year of transition from our previous governance model, we on the Executive recognized early on that there would be some wrinkles to smooth out—many items and processes were considered in re-writing the By-Law, plus we introduced a completely new Policy Manual, and some circumstances just couldn’t be foreseen.

Colin Haig, 1st Vice President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, was interviewed May 23 on CTV News Channel about the new meteor shower tonight!
