If there are no telescopes attending, then parking can be at the back of the house. Check the Forum Thread to be sure of attendance expected.

  • We hope you can attend.

  • Parking is also limited, later arrivals may need to park in the
  • Wash below the house.
  • It is advised you arrive 15 minutes prior to dark so you can navigate the parking by a little daylight.

Here is the Public Forum Thread to track attendance of everyone who RSVP's. Please read this Thread in case any changes are needed to this event:
  • If your arrival time is not 6pm, please let Terri know about what time you expect to arrive. This helps with knowing where to put your vehicle.

Star Party:
  • After the Lecture, it is possible that PAS Members may set up telescopes (this is why you should read about this event in the Forum Thread to find out if telescopes are attending on this night).
  • If you are staying for the Star Party, please wear close-toed shoes as this location has a gravel & cactus observing area.
  • Also, NO white light is allowed in the observing area. If you have a cell phone and need to use it or answer a call, walk away from the observing area so we maintain dark adapted eyes.
  • If you can, it is preferred you bring a Red filtered flashlight to navigate the unlevel Observing Area.
