Dear friends across Europe, what a ride this year has been for us here in AS Castelldefels! After a successful Fly-In back in July 2022 and becoming an AS, we elected a new board.
These past few months, we’ve been busy organizing different activities for our members. Back in December, we organized the first of many visits to the Observatory of Castelldefels, where we learned many things space-related thanks to the observatory team: Astrofels. The very first night we observed Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and Mars. As it was a success among our members, we decided to organize a second visit some weeks ago in March. We could observe a full moon, an incredible sight, as it was the first time for many of our members to see the moon at its largest. And, with the help of a professional camera, we could capture some photos of different nebulas and galaxies, being the Orion Nebula the one that captivated everyone's attention [Fig 1].
March 22 was the day we gathered our members (and potential ones) to talk about the future of the AS. We explained our upcoming plans and activities: from visits to the Barcelona-El Prat airport to robot and drone competitions on the campus.
Another key achievement has been the launch of our new website! The board has put in so much effort so our members can get a clear view on what we do in EUROAVIA and what are the advantages of being a member. On the website, there is an interactive calendar where all the planned local activities can be found and a blog to inform our EUROAVIAns about different topics.
From AS Castelldefels we wish to consistently spread the spirit of EUROAVIA throughout our student community and aim even further beyond as time goes by!
