Saturday September 9 – Public Star Party at Pinnacle Mountain State Park

 

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 show your universe.

Saturday August 26th Regular Monthly Meeting at 7 PM, Star Party Afterward

Our next public event will be Saturday August 26th after the coming solar eclipse. This month we’re combining our regular monthly meeting with a public star party at Pinnacle Mountain State Park. Join us at 7 PM to see us one up each other with solar eclipse stories and photos then stay with us later as we show you the sky after the sun sets. Star party starts at 9 PM.

If you are looking for information on the upcoming total solar eclipse, please watch this excellent episode of “The Night Sky” and click on the “Solar Eclipse” button to the left for details about how much of the partial eclipse you can expect or to purchase eclipse glasses.

While CAAS members will be chasing the total eclipse, the Central Arkansas Library System and the Museum of Discovery will be having partial solar eclipse watch events. Here are links to their events. If you can’t get away to see the total eclipse go to one of these.
