PAStimes is the newsletter of the Phoenix Astronomical Society. It includes news and reviews of our lecture series and star parties, details of upcoming events, astronomy news, and club info. You can download it here as a free full-color PDF document (Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later recommended). PAStimes is published monthly from September through May. We archive on this page all the issues for the current season. Previous seasons are available through the link on the bottom of the page.

If you want to print a hardcopy: PAStimes is archived as a PDF file. It will typically print smaller than it was created causing larger margins and 5-10% smaller images. This is because most printer drivers automatically shrink the document to make sure it can fit on a standard 8½ x 11 sheet of paper. Most printers can't print all the way to the edge of the sheet, but the drivers aren't smart enough to realize blank margins aren't an issue. To avoid this problem, when your print dialog box comes up, look for an option something like "shrink page to fit" and deselect it. You can then enjoy the newsletter at the size and resolution intended.

Deadline for submitted material: Content must be received by the tenth of the month. The current issue of PAStimes will be posted approximately one week before the monthly meeting. To view an edition of PAStimes click on the popup icon in the upper right corner of the edition tile below. A pdf reader will display the edition To download it select the download icon in the reader.
