2 Telescope Workshops are Cancelled
Mar 16, 2019 - 11:13 AM - by Terri Finch
Fantastic Saturday to everyone,

Mar 17 at Bookmans - the only RSVP I had, has cancelled his attendance, and thus, I am cancelling this event. Please make a note of it.

Mar 21 at PVCC - Due to lack of Telescope Teacher attendance, I have cancelled this event.

Please make a note of this change.
Have a super weekend!

Update on Mar - end of May 2019 Free Public Events

Update on Mar - end of May 2019 Free Public Events

Awesome Friday to everyone!
March and April are super busy months for PAS.
The weather has turned nice and hopefully it stays that way.

Quick reminder: If you RSVP for an event and the event becomes cancelled, a notice will come to you by email by 4pm that day (or earlier if the event starts earlier) as the PAS Weather Watching Team monitors and reports the weather to me to make a decision on the events status (Happening or Cancelled) around 11:30am on the event day. Be sure to RSVP if you want to get the notice about Cancelled events. RSVP to

These are ALL Public Events....
That means bring everyone you know to the event, and enjoy!

Dates of events are in Bold for easy reading.
I have included the links for easier RSVP.

This list is accurate for today - Mar 15 Friday to end of May 2019.
Please always check the PAS online calendar for the most up-to-date details of the event, before you attend in case there is a change to how the event will happen.

Mar 17 Sunday - Bookmans Telescope 3:30 to 5:30pm
I have room for more RSVP's to attend to get help with their Telescopes. We currently have 1 Public RSVP. And I currently have enough Telescope Teachers to do this event.

Mar 28 BMC Star Party Set up is at 5:30 for indoor activities which is usually Mike with his meteorites and me with the PAS table, Q&A, and if there are enough scopes attending - a Treasure Hunt. Indoor activites start at 6:30 to 9:30pm, and set up for the Star Party outdoors is 6pm with a star party from 7pm to 9:30pm.
I currently count 4 attending telescopes, which is ok for a general star party but not enough scopes for a Treasure Hunt. We don't have to do a Treasure Hunt this month if the Telescope Team prefers not to. I would like a minimum of 6 telescopes for the Treasure Hunt.

Mar 30 Huge Star Party in Fountain Hills. RSVP in Private Calendar to attend with or without a scope. Please be sure to mention your attendance plans... with a scope - what size, or without a scope to enjoy the event. This will help Ted with the planning of the event:

Apr 4 PAS Meeting does not require an RSVP but Please note it is in a different room - KSC 1000A. Doors open 7pm, meeting begins 7:30pm.
Bring a friend, the family, and a snack to share, and come enjoy a larger crowd at this meeting!!!

Apr 6 Public Star Party at South Mountain 7pm to 9pm. Bring a friend, enjoy a night under the stars:

Apr 11 Free Telescope Workshop at PVC 7pm to 9:30pm. RSVP is Required. See site for what to include in your RSVP

Apr 14 Bookmans Free Telescope Workshop. RSVP required 3:30 to 5:30pm:

Apr 25: Huge PUblic Star party at BMC 7pm to 9:30pm. Bring everyone you know.

Always check the PAS online Calendar for the most current events and remember that paper lists of events and this list, is only accurate at the time of it's creation and you should always refer to the online Calendar for the most accurate list of events and data about each event.

Have a super Friday and weekend!

2 Events YOU Don't Want to Miss - Mar 6 & Mar 7
Mar 06, 2019 - 2:46 PM - by Terri Finch
Awesome afternoon to eveeryone,

I have 2 events I wish to share with you for which you may wish to bring a friend and your entire family to....

1) Tonight, Mar 6, PAS Meeting. Yes, tonight is a Wednesday night and we are accommodating the guest speaker as well as PVCC BMC for their event tomorrow.
Please come to the meeting and have a great time with Jim Renn from the Vatican Observatory as our super awesome guest speaker!!!
Here's some additional details. You don't have to RSVP, the Meeting is happening tonight. Just come along, bring a Friend, bring a snack to share (if you like) and join PAS in an evening of talking about Astronomy! Everyone is Welcome:

2) The 2nd event I wish to share with you is the STEAM event at BMC! That's tomorrow night, Thursday Mar 7. Activities indoors are setting up at 4pm. That's when I will be there. The General public shows up at 5pm, the star party isn't until about 7pm. In the past, i have noticed that the star party begins about the same time as the indoor activites end. Then the star party concludes at 9:30pm along with the indoor activites that might be still set up, Mike with his meteorites, and Me with the PAS table.
Here are more details about this event... Everyone is welcome, bring a friend, bring the whole family!! This is a STEAM event and there will be a bunch of activities for kids of all ages.

Looking forward to seeing you at both of these fantastic events!

Have a super Week!

Upcoming Public Events for the week of Mar 4 2019
Mar 04, 2019 - 11:05 AM - by Terri Finch
Upcoming Public Events for the week of Mar 4 2019
RSVP for the events below:
1) PAS Members RSVP on the Calendar, please
2) Public attendees - please RSVP to with the requested RSVP info. Thanks.

Good morning PAS Members and Guests of PAS!!!

We have a busy week of Events ahead of us. These are PAS events you might want to attend.

Please see the online Calendar links for all of these events. I have provided links for you to use to read about these events, and please RSVP when asked to do so as Weather this whole year has been very weird, wet and cloudy.

Mar 6 4:30pm is Meet and Greet the Guest Speaker Dinner before the Meeting at Chili's. Be sure your RSVP to attend this dinner is on the site or in my email by Tuesday - tomorrow Mar 5.

Mar 6 Wednesday is the next PAS Meeting. 7pm in LS-203 with Jim Renn. It will be spectacular, you don't want to miss it.

Mar 6 at the Civic Library will be a STEAM event from 3:30 to 5:30pm. PAS was invited to attend. This is a public event, but it is NOT a PAS Event. Feel free to attend:

Mar 7 Thursday and Weather Permitting is the STEAM event at BMC. RSVP is highly suggested because I see clouds on that day - but we don't know the weather for sure until the morning of the event... I'm just peeking ahead on the weather.

Mar 9 + 10 Fri and Sat is an event for the public for Tonto National Monument Heritage Days. It is from 8:30am to 5:30pm. More details are in the PAS Calendar and in the March PAStimes Newsletter - free to download at this link:

That was just a quick review of this week. Everyone have a super week! Let's all hope for clear skies since the cloudy skies are cancelling a lot of the events PAS is trying to provide for your viewing fun, education and entertainment.
