Grupo de Astronomos Mendocinos Aficionados (GAMA)
Mendoza, Argentina

A message from Leo Cavagnaro, GAMA Liaison to RCA:

When I see friends from RCA visiting Mendoza to enjoy the Southern Skies with us and to share our common affection for that marvelous science called astronomy, I can not forget how far we can go when enthusiasm is present and we carry out projects and joint activities taking into account two of the most important things to have in mind, in my opinion, carrying out proposed projects and quality.

Some years ago I sent from my computer an e-mail to RCA Group in Oregon because I saw on the internet a great and enthusiastic group of amateur astronomers up there. Since that day we have enjoyed together several great activities, at first from the distance, then together. Personally I think one of the most awesome things to do in astronomy is to share the skies with people from other parts of the world. That enriches our souls and our knowledge in this beautiful science. Never forget to look up and enjoy the stars!

Sincerely, Leo Cavagnaro.

Leo Cavagnaro has written many excellent articles for the Rosette Gazette on observing the southern skies.

He has also recently written a book with detailed descriptions of 176 of the Best Southern Sky Objects.
