Public Star Party at Black Mountain Campus
Whole event Time: 6pm to 9:45pm
Bring a Friend!
Bring the whole family.
Please RSVP with Terri to attend


New Schedule for tonight:

PVCC is requesting we are off the campus tonight by 10pm. So here's tonight's time frame for the BMC event.

5pm is set up for indoor activities
5:30 is set up for star party because the winds are scheduled to become too much, later in the evening, and so we are attempting to start a little earlier so we have enough viewing time.

6pm is start of indoor activities
6:30pm is start of star party

Everything ends at 9:30pm tonight, indoor and outdoor.

The Public needs to pick up their raffle winnings, and prizes for doing the Treasure Hunt before 9:30pm when I pack up.

PAS Members received an email, today, about the Raffle and picking up their prizes.

Sorry for any inconvenience. See you there tonight!

More details can be read about in the PAS Forums:
This link takes you to the Planning pages of this event which includes the items in the raffle, the attending telescopes, the indoor activities and more.
Please check it out.

The Public calls with their RSVP and asks these same questions almost every time.... so, i present the answers here.
1) This event is open to everyone. Come take a look through our high powered telescopes.
2) This event has the ability to be wheel chair friendly. However, you might not be able to see through a scope that is looking at an object closer to the horizon, if you can not stand up from your wheel chair for some of the scopes.
3) This event also starts outdoors when it gets dark enough to see something in the night sky, and ends at 9:45. The public does not have to attend at the start of the event, but they do have to leave at the end of the event. Come and go as you please.
Additional notes: I highly recommend that you look through each telescope at least 2 times during the evening, as the telescope operators will be moving to new objects as new objects become availble and the previous objects disappear from view.

PAS members are setting up 10-14 telescopes for your viewing pleasure. Please help us keep these events Admission FREE by following these rules.
a) Please NO White light in the observing area. If your phone rings, take the call away from the observing deck so that your white like will not affect other attendees night vision.
b) Please DO NOT touch the telescopes.

PAS Members please RSVP your attendance below.
A minimum of 1 scope and 1 public RSVP will
keep this event happening. RSVP today!

Public RSVP is by Email to Please include number in your party. Thanks.
