Banquet

Every year SAS holds its annual banquet as a means for members to come together and celebrate the past year of activities.  We also have a noted contributor to astronomy give us a presentation.  We hope you can join us in January for a bit of fun and sharing.

Our 2019 Banquet will be at the Swedish Club on January 27, 2019, beginning with a social hour featuring a no-host bar at 5:00 p.m. and followed by dinner which will be served at 6:00 p.m. Tickets will be on sale soon to SAS members first and then to the general public. Our noted speaker at this 2018 Banquet will be David Levy! Check here for information about ticket sales and menu as more facts become available.

SAS is very fortunate to welcome as our 2019 guest speaker the extremely accomplished and world famous astronomer, David Levy. He was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and developed an early interest in astronomy which led to discovery of his first comet on November 13, 1984. David Levy went on to discover many more comets which now bear his name, but it was the discovery of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet in 1993 which thrust him into world prominence and introduced David Levy to planet earth as one of the most expert and productive comet hunters on the planet. In addition to his outstanding comet discoveries, David Levy has written 34 books, of which a majority are on astronomical topics. He has also received many honorary awards for his accomplishments: the C.A. Chant Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the Amateur Astronomical Achievement Award of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory's Edgar Wilson Award.

SAS is privileged to welcome this most accomplished astronomer, David Levy, as speaker for our 2019 Banquet!
