With the Mid-States Region of the Astronomical League convention beginning June 9, the College of Natural and Applied Sciences wants to welcome you to
campus and thank all of you for your love of the stars. With astronomy-centered events, tours and speakers, we hope you are ready for a fun-filled weekend!
We wanted to take moment and recognize all of the people it takes to make the Mid-States Region of the Astronomical League a success. This convention is sponsored by the Ozarks Amateur Astronomers Club, the Springfield Astronomical Society and the physics, astronomy and materials science department. We also want to thank Baker Observatory for the amazing tour that will take place June 9.
A huge thank you goes to Dr. Peter Plavchan who will serve as the keynote speaker for this event. We would also like to thank the rest of our speakers, attendees, vendors and astronomy enthusiasts.
We hope you have an astronomically great time!
