The best way to get involved with our activities is to subscribe to one of our three mailing lists.
The astronomical-society-announce mailing list is a very-low-traffic mailing list used exclusively for announcements. You can (and should!) subscribe here. The list is only used to announce SAS public events (e.g., our next stargazing night). Expect less than four e-mails per month.
The astronomical-society mailing list is used for general astronomy talk. Do you know of an interesting astronomical event? Are you looking for partners for a night of observation? Do you have a question about telescopes or a cool astrophoto you’d like to share? Do not hesitate to post here! Event announcements will also be sent on this list, of course: the list server is smart enough to avoid delivering duplicates.
The sasleaders mailing list remains the go-to communication channels for executive decisions. If you’d like to help run SAS, plan its growth and organize its events, by all means join us there!
We meet every two weeks, typically on Thursdays, to plan and organize the Society’s activities. Subscribe to the sasleaders mailing list to find out the date and location of our next meeting!
We have a page on Cardinal Sync, Stanford’s portal for student organizations. We do invite you to subscribe to our page on Cardinal Sync: this is the official way of becoming a member of the Society and the only way we have of counting members who belong to the Stanford community.
