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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday, October 10th, is our Monthly Club Meeting at the River Ridge Observatory and we would like to invite you, your family, and/or your friends to attend. You don’t have to own a telescope or have any kind of advanced knowledge to be a part of the fun, just have a curiosity about the night sky and the desire to learn more. CAAS meetings are always open to the public. Besides the sky, Dave Grimmer will provide us a recap of his recent trip to the Okie-Tex Star Party and Stephen Caldwell is giving a Dead Astronomer Report on Annie Jump Cannon.
The meeting starts at 7pm but we have a “SupperBowl” at 6pm and if you would like to dine with is then RSVP with the button below or the one to the left.
Before the regular meeting at 7 will be a board meeting at 5. We’ll be working on the budget for 2016 and other matters. All members are welcome and encouraged to come to the board meeting and to take ownership of the society by becoming active in its management. Please come and let your voice be heard.
Supper bowl will be at 6PM. We’ll be returning to “bowl” format with the fall and will be serving Fiesta Chicken. Price will be $5 each.
Join CAAS and our friends at Pinnacle Mountain State Park for a free star party. Weather permitting, we’ll set up telescopes at the Visitor Center and share our passion. 8PM to 10 PM. This is a great family-friendly activity!
