Exciting downloadable FREE Ebooks
Jun 21, 2018 - 1:34 PM - by Terri Finch
Good morning Everyone!

Today I was searching for a way to print a star chart in prep for going out observing with my telescope this weekend. I used to use SkyandTelescope.com's interactive sky chart until their sky chart became a hassle to use, as it froze on a regular basis due to JAVA not working correctly on my computer. My last visit to their site (not counting just now) was 1.5+ years ago.

I am happy to report that they have mended their Interactive Sky Chart and it works like a dream now.
Here's the link: https://www.skyandtelescope.com/obse...ive-sky-chart/

The other really cool thing I found when visiting Sky and Telescope's site
and Astronomy's site was some FREE Ebooks. If you don't have an account on these two sites, create a free account and then you can download these wonderful items to read....

From SkyandTelescope.com
Here's the link to the FREE Ebook Library:
https://www.skyandtelescope.com/free-ebook-library/

"StarGazing: Getting Started" (accessible from front page)

"Black Holes"
"Saturn's Bounty"
"Shooting Stars"
"Mars Landings: Then and Now"
"Astrophotography Primer"

And from Astronomy.com
The location of this ebook is on the front page.

"Pluto and its moons: Findings from the New Horizons mission"

I thought I'd share these wonderful findings with everyone.
Have a super day!

Upcoming Public Events for June 2018
Jun 06, 2018 - 12:07 PM - by Terri Finch
Awesome day to all!

Here's a quick summary of upcoming Public Events for June 2018. Many people have emailed asking what the events are for June, so here they are, listed, with the links to get more details, as well as what to send me (Events@pasaz.org) for your RSVP to attend.
Most of the Summer events REQUIRE an RSVP because of the Phoenix Monsoons cancelling events. Even indoor events at certain locations will be cancelled if there is any amount of falling rain or high winds. Please always RSVP during the Phoenix Monsoon season of the Middle of May to the end of September. This way you are sure to get the cancel notice if there is one.

Here are the June 2018 Public Events that are Free and open to all ages:

Please note: On the PAS Online Calendar are Planetarium shows that are open to all PAS Members. You have to be a PAS Member to attend these shows. If this interests you... please download a Membership form and get it sent in to PAS at the address on the form. Once received, you may attend any and all of the Free Planetarium Shows in Cave Creek.
