Our November meeting will be held at the Whittenberger Planetarium in Caldwell, Idaho
instead of at Anser Charter School. Whittenberger Planetarium is located in the
basement of Boone Hall on the College of Idaho campus off of S. 20th Ave. and Fillmore
Ave. I must remind everyone that this is a member only event; however, you may join the
Society at the door. Our Treasurer and Secretary will be available to assist you with this.

On Monday, the 11th of November there is a transit of Mercury across the surface of the
Sun. More information will found on page 3 of the newsletter.
As we approach the end of 2019, it’s time to start looking at who will lead BAS into the
coming year and beyond. Volunteers are what has made BAS a success for many years.
All of our elected officers and appointed board members are volunteers who enjoy the
hobby and sharing it with others. Yes, it does take some time and effort but I feel that
every minute I’ve spent working for BAS has been time well spent. With the annual club
elections coming up at the December 2019meeting, I’d like you to think about all that
BAS has done for you over the years and how some of you might be able to make it
even better. I’m sure we have other club members willing to step up to the challenge.
Keep this in mind over the next couple of months as we begin to wind down 2019.
Attending a board meeting might help if you are uncertain about what goes on and the
board would most certainly welcome your attendance.
Clear skies until next month
David Olsen, President
