LATEST NEWS

EAS to Launch YouTube Channel Posted 11 May 2017:
Jay Kallee came up with the excellent idea of setting up a YouTube channel for EAS, on which he planned to publish short video clips of meetings and observing sessions. We are pleased to announce that the Committee has now approved the project, and work will begin shortly.  The idea is just to give a flavour of our meetings and observing sessions to encourage people to join EAS, and also so that other organisations can see what we are about.  What you definitely won't be seeing on the channel is full videos of lectures given at our meetings, as it is felt that this might encourage people to stay at home and watch the meetings online rather than coming along!  We'll be publishing details of the YouTube channel and posting links to videos on our website and social media.

Janus to Return to Print Posted 7 March 2017:
We are very pleased to announce that our monthly newsletter Janus is to return to print after a number of years as an online feature.  Limited numbers of the paper copy of each month's issue will be available at our monthly meetings, starting in March, with the 12 page pilot.  Featured articles will continue to be published on the Janus page, and you will also be able to download a PDF of each month's issue at the bottom of the page.  There is a cost implication in producing the paper newsletter, which at the present time is being covered by the Society, but more importantly - if the paper version is to be sustainable, we will be reliant on our members to make contributions of articles, observations, reports etc.  Please send articles for publication to the Editor at ewellastro.editor@gmail.com 

Two New Committee Members for EAS 

Posted 12 December 2016: We are pleased to announce the election of two new members to the EAS Committee - Paul Evans and Stephen Stangroom, who will be sharing the role of website management. We also say a fond farewell to Louis Barman who has stepped down from his role on the committee. Thank you Louis for all your hard work with the website, programming speakers and running the library - you will be sorely missed!
