Default Aug 5 2010 Saturn, Mars, Venus Star Party at PVCC

The Phoenix Astronomical Society & Paradise Valley Community College in Phoenix will
be holding a public Star Party to view Saturn, Mars & Venus on the PVCC campus by G-147
from 6pm to 10pm. Everyone is Welcome. Bring the entire family. RSVP is required by email at Events@pasaz.org or by Phone (Terri) 602-561-5398 by day before event. Should the weather cancel this event, your RSVP will ensure you get a notice about the cancellation. Phoenix has Monsoons that cancel events for the months of July & August.

This is the forum thread to discuss this upcoming event.
Feel free to post questions and ideas.

See you there!

Default 8/2 Update:

Watch the weather for this event.
Winds over 10mph, or
precipitation or clouds in excess of 20%
will cancel this event.

If you are unsure the event will happen,
call Terri around 4pm, day of event,
to confirm event is scheduled & happening.

Terri 602-561-5398
Leave a message if I do not answer.
I will call you back ASAP.

Please be sure to RSVP your attendance
if you want the cancel notice given to you
the moment we cancel.

We hope not to have to cancel, but with MONSOONS,
it is possible at anytime, that the monsoons will
get in the way of our event.

Bring your whole family.
This event is being held for the PVCC students, but is open to everyone!
See you there!

Default UPdate 8/5:

The weather looks awesome for tonight's event.

The set up will be in the Parking lot just a little S.E. of G-147.
Here's the campus map. ON it, the typed in words of "G-147"
is right where the parking lot is.

Public can not park in that parking lot, it is locked. But
Telescope Team members can pull into that parking lot
after 7pm tonight, and set up their scope.

Public, park in another lot and walk over.

Suggested things to bring:

If you are going to stay the length (7pm to 10pm) of the event,
you might want to bring a chair, drinks, snacks (especially
if you bring kids). Bring these items for yourself and your
family. There are vending machines on campus, but they
are not close to where we are set up for this evenings event.

Please watch our kids around our expensive equipment. Everyone
is welcome at the event, but best behavior is required.

This should b an awesome event. The weather prediction
is clear, very warm and dry. That's the best way to have
a star party, except the "very warm" part.

We hope to see everyone there having a great time.
Mike will be set up outdoors by the telescopes
with Hands on Meteorites. Come see what he has.
He usually steals the attention of the party!!!
