ASU West Public Star Party Featuring Jupiter, Mars, & Saturn
Calendar: PAS Public Event Calendar
Event Posted By: Terri Finch  
10-10-2018 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM
ASU West Public Star Party

ASU west is located at 4701 W Thunderbird Rd, Glendale, AZ 85306
There is a $3 parking fee for all attendees of this event and you must park in the parking lot, unless you can park near by and walk over, such as at Arby's across the street at 47th ave and Thunderbird.

See you there!
I do suggest a light jacket, as it could have a chill in the breeze.

Come touch and feel real Rocks from Space. Meteorite Man Mike will be at this event with his very popular Meteorite collection. Bring the Kids of all ages.

PAS Members RSVP below to attend and list the telescope you are bringing, please. PAS Members, please park in the usual set up location, and come up the hill slowly as not to raise too much dust for the telescopes.

Set up is 6pm.
Arbys dinner is 4:30pm to 5:45pm.

Everyone is welcome to join the Telescope Team at dinner before the event. It's a Buy Your Own Dinner (BYO) get together. We will be discussing the set up of the event, what we are observing, etc.

Tonight's highlights are:

sunset is about 6pm
Dark is about 7:30pm
Moon goes down with the Sun - not visible this night

Event begins at 7pm, and here's what we have availble:
Jupiter is by the Sun and sets about 7:40pm
Mars is visible 6:10pm
Saturn is visible 6:20pm to 10pm
And we have an ISS fly over about 8:03pm to 8:06 pm, which might not be visible but if it is, it is flying NW to SW.

RSVP for the attending Public is directly with Paul - the Host of this event at ASU West and his email address is:
Please let him know how many are in your party.

We hope to see you there!

Here's the link to RSVP your attendance at Arby's anytime arriving from 4:30 to 6:30pm:
