From our vantage point in the Milky Way Galaxy, we see NGC 3344 face-on. Nearly 40,000 light-years across, the big, beautiful spiral galaxy is located just 20 million light-years away in the constellation of Leo Minor. This multi-color Hubble Space Telescope close-up of NGC 3344 includes remarkable details from near infrared to ultraviolet wavelengths. The frame extends some 15,000 light-years across the spiral’s central regions. From the core outward, the galaxy’s colors change from the yellowish light of old stars in the center to young blue star clusters and reddish star forming regions along the loose, fragmented spiral arms. Of course, the bright stars with a spiky appearance are in front of NGC 3344 and lie well within our own Milky Way.

ASX will be holding its Annual General Meeting to elect the 2018-2019 executive team, and celebrate the end of a great year with FREE food! There are many positions available to run for! Perhaps you think my work on the website is shotty, well then you can come on down and put me out of a job!

Date & Location: 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM Wed. Apr. 4 2018, McLennan Physical Laboratories (MP), Rm. 118, 60 St. George St., Toronto, ON M5S 1A7

If you are a student at the University of Toronto and you are an ASX member (i.e., you are on our mailing list), then you are eligible to vote and to run for an executive position. To run, email space.society@utoronto.ca before 11:59 pm on Tuesday, April 3rd. You can state up to three executive positions that you intend on running for in order of preference, and come prepared with a short speech of no more than 3 minutes for each position. If you wish to run for more than one position, please tailor your speech to each of the positions you intend on running for. At the AGM, voting will follow the procedure outlined in the ASX Constitution, section 6 (Constitution).
*Note that if a candidate wishes to run for President, Vice President, Finance director, or Secretary, then they require a nomination from two other ASX members.

To see descriptions of available positions, please see section 4 of the ASX Constitution. The descriptions for President, Vice-President, and Finance Director are omitted because you may only run for those positions if you have held another ASX executive position for at least 6 months.
