Founded in 1970, 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
Join CAAS on June 15th on the beach at Woolly Hollow State Park for a free public star party. We CAASiopeians will set up scopes by the lake from 9 PM to 11 PM to share our passion for the night sky with you! Bring your kids, if you don’t have any, bring your parents, but be there.
|The June meeting will feature a presentation by Darrell Heath called “Our Place In Our Galaxy”, a demo of NASA Night Sky Network program that members can present at just about any kind of outreach venue for a wide range of audiences. With a quarter and some birdseed you can help folks construct a mental image of the size of the Milky Way Galaxy, our place within it, and its distribution of stars. Constellation of the Month will deviate for one month only to the moon by Steve Block. He will provide a handout for observing and learning the moon in one short Lunar Month.|
