Default PAS's 70th Anniversary Astronomy Celebration Event on Oct 11 2018 at BMC of PVCC

PAS's 70th Anniversary Astronomy Celebration Event on Oct 11 2018 at BMC of PVCC

Everyone is invited to attend this fantastic event.

Festivities begin indoors in the Aquila Building at 5pm and go to 9:30pm. The list of activities will be in a separate entry below.
Guest Speakers will also be joining this party and providing 20 minute presentations on the topics listed later in this forum thread.

Outdoors, the Planets will become visible about 7pm, so we are holding a huge star party on the Observing Deck just behind the Aquila Building from 7pm to 9:45pm. Please don't go down to the observing deck until the telescopes are set up. There will be vehicles driving on the walk way from the parking lot to the Observing deck to unload equipment. For your safety, stay in the Aquila building until 7pm, please.

We would love for everyone to attend and enjoy the evening celebrating 70 years of the Phoenix Astronomical Society!

Terri, Event Manager

More details to come....
