Join us on April 30th at 7 PM for our regular monthly meeting, 6 PM if you are going to join us for the supper bowl. Our presentation will be “Touring the Stars” and will feature star hopping to your favorite deep sky/Messier objects and learning the constellations. Earning the Constellation Hunter Astronomical Award is fun and one of the easiest Astronomical League awards to earn. There will be several Door Prizes. As always, meetings of the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society are open to the public.
We are also going to have a board meeting at 4:30 PM to discuss proposed changes to the 2016 budget and new projects at the River Ridge Observatory. All members are encouraged to take ownership of your society and attend.
Supper bowl will be at 6PM. Price will be $6 each. Please RSVP so we will know how much to make.
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!
Dr. Robertson (Jeff) is going to elaborate his Hub talk for us at the March club meeting. This program is particularly timely with the passing of recently discovered comets hurtling past the earth as it is about tracking near earth objects and variable star observation. These are both things that one could do with the RRT. Currently forecast to be clear and moon does not rise for several hours after dark. Be a good night for those with scope issues to pick the brains of other members. Steve Block and Chris Lasley and likely others can help.
