The PAS Indoor Astronomy Event is just what it says. Come join us as we do hands-on Astronomy demos, where you get to test your knowledge of astronomy, learn from those who love the subject, and get to experience really cool things inside the classroom.

This event will happen indoors - Rain or Shine.

Indoor activities:

Chet - imaging spectrograph to help illustrate the following subjects:

* The characteristics of color perception
* An explanation of color imaging techniques
* The nature and characteristics of light polution (LP)
* How filters reduce the effects of LP for visual astronomy
* How filters improve imaging under LP conditions
* The use of narrow band filters for both imaging and observing


Mike - Meteorite Man
  • Hands on touching of meteorites & more.
