Astronomy Day

Join the TAA for a night of astronomical observing at the Arthur Pursell Observatory. The evening will include a short program on astronomical objects of interest, a tour of the constellations and bright stars, and astronomical viewing through TAA’s 12″ Astrola and other large telescopes. Cost: $5 per person. Dress comfortably and bring your own seating and refreshments and binoculars if you have them. (NOTE: no alcoholic beverages allowed on the premises).

Tonight is National Astronomy Day and National Observe the Moon Day. Please join us while we say goodbye to the summer constellations. We will focus on the summer triangle, moon, Hercules Cluster, Dumbbell Nebula, Ring Nebula and much more. We will also use our new astronomical video camera to give stunning views of the above objects.
