Update 3/19 11am:
The Moon Marathon part of this event has been canceled due to very thick clouds in the forecast for tonight during the 7pm to 11pm time frame in which we would hold the marathon.
However, Mike is still having a party. So, come join the potluck and bring a movie to share. Stay the night if you wish - BYO Sleeping Bag.
This event is now for PAS Members only, or contact Mike at 480-488-3031 to see if he would invite you to attend.


Open to the public but RSVP is required to attend.
To attend: you need to have a telescope of your own
to use for this event.
Youngsters can have an adults' help who isn't also in the marathon.

This will be a potluck, so bring a food and drink to share.
It will be held at Mike's home in Carefree.

Dinner is from 4pm to 6:30pm.
Moon doesn't rise until 7:10pm.
And since it is on the horizon, it may be difficult to see
the features you are looking for, until it gets higher in the sky.

Here's the observing info for the night:

Mercury visible 6:40pm and sets 7:50pm
Jupiter is visible 6:40 and sets 7:50pm

Please read about the event and any changes in that forum link
prior to attending, just in case some plan has changed between
