Welcome!Founded in 1971, the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society is a member-owned, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to promoting amateur astronomy and recreational sky watching in central Arkansas, as well as bringing the reality of the universe closer to the general public. The membership is diverse in every dimension, the one common element being a shared interest in astronomy and science.
Join us at 7 PM for our regular monthly meeting, 6 PM if you are going to join us for the supper bowl. The return of the much maligned Daylight Saving Time has shifted our meetings one hour into the future.
The presentation will be February episode of the BBC’s “The Sky at Night”. Bruce McMath will do the Constellation of the Month. February’s The Sky at Night episode features show presenters Dr. Chris Lintott and Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock taking us to the Canary Island’s Roque de lost Muchachos Observatory where they take control of the telescopes to view a variety of deep-sky objects selected by the show’s viewers. Also, amateur astronomer and astroimager Pete Lawrence shows us how to observe the Apollo lunar landing sites from our own backyards.
If conditions allow, there will be observing afterward.
As always, meetings of the Central Arkansas Astronomical Society are open to the public.
SupperBowl price will be $6 each.
