Founded in 1971, the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society strives to connect the people of central Arkansas with their universe by promoting amateur astronomy activities for its members and by providing information and programs to the general public. Membership offers monthly programs, special outings, and the opportunity to share this hobby with others. No one is under qualified for membership. Experience levels range from novice sky watchers to skilled observers. You can contact us at info@caasastro.org

National Astronomy Day 5/14/2016 Free to Public

National-Astronomy-Day

Join CAAS Saturday, May 14th, for our National Astronomy Day event at Pinnacle Mountain. Our activities begin at 2pm outside the visitor center with safe solar viewing through a variety of telescopes. We will also be harnessing the Sun’s energy to roast marshmallows coated in chocolate powder (yum!). Water rockets and bubble blowing will be on tap for the late afternoon. Free goodies courtesy of the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium will also be available throughout the afternoon and evening.

Finally, capping off the day, there will be a star party from 8:30-10pm. All events are free and family friendly so c’mon out to celebrate all things astronomical!

Feel free to pass along this info to anyone else you know who might want to come out that day.
