Our annual business meeting is Friday, January 21, 2022 at 7:30 PM.

After PAS Business (which includes Board Member voting by the Membership) PAS Board Member, VP and Lick Observatory Telescope Operator Rick Baldridge will give a talk on: “Lick Observatory — Behind the Scenes”

Rick has been a PAS member for 44 years, and a Lick Staff Member since 2015. He’ll show decommissioned telescopes and other locations on the mountain that are rarely visited or seen by the public, along with local history and other tidbits of information. It will be an interesting talk!
