Astronomy Magazine Award for Aldrich!

Astronomy Magazine has announced the winner of its 2007 "Out-of-this-world" award, and it's the Aldrich Astronomy Society, the central Massachusetts astronomy club of which I am a member. The $2500 prize will be used to buy astronomical equipment and materials to expand our outreach activities. The press release also mentions that Aldrich has the unique distinction that four of its members are NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassadors (I'm one of them).

Congratulations to all my fellow Aldrich members, and special congratulations and thanks to our president, Jim Zebrowski, who applied for the award and who works so hard to support the club and to keep us on track with educational outreach activities and other astronomy events
