All Are Invited: BBQ & Messier Marathon This Saturday!

Grab your telescope or binoculars, a pack of hot dogs, and the kids and come on out to River Ridge Observatory this Saturday evening (March 17) for an “informal” Messier Marathon & BBQ! This will be a great time for those who are new to astronomy or new to CAAS to come out, meet the club, and check out different types of equipment.
The weather forecast simply says: “CLEAR.” Now, if you’ve been involved with astronomy events very much, you know that this is a rare forecast for a pre-planned star party. We may be in for a VERY nice evening of observing!
If anyone would like a map/directions, please drop an email to: As far as a time, I expect folks will begin arriving as early as 5:30-6:00 p.m. to get the coals fired up for the BBQ and set up the ‘scopes. Hope to see you there!!
