Hi, like every new moon of the month, when the sky is the darkest, I organize an astronomy party for my friends and the Phoenix Astronomy Society. If any of Science and Technology Group likes to join the fun please let me know: [masked]

The coming party is on Saturday September 7 at 6:30 pm.
Will have potluck starting at 6:30pm and observing will start around 7:30 pm.

Please remember to RSVP so I have an idea of how many people will come for food and drinks. Thank You.

    Hi, Yves. The Phoenix Astronomical Society has scheduled a telescope training workshop this Thursday evening (http://www.pasaz.org/forums/calendar.php?do=getinfo&day=2013-9-12&e=944&c=1). It looks like it may be rained out, though. There's another scheduled for September 22nd at a different location (http://www.pasaz.org/forums/calendar.php?do=getinfo&e=842&day=2013-9-22&c=1).

    Yves, thank you for hosting that spectacular party Saturday evening. Nancy and I had a wonderful time and our heads are still spinning from meeting so many fascinating people!

    Thanks for the tour of your observatory. I had several million questions to ask about your telescope!

    Nancy and I will be at this Thursday's Telescope Training session. I hope you can attend and that we'll see you there.

    Despite the clouds I had a great time meeting you all. I hope you enjoyed the party.

    I hope you all had a great time at the party and it was as informational as you where hopping for even though we could not see the stars this time due to the cloudy sky. I hope also that you enjoyed the experimental music from Waveformanalogueresearch Elektro by Scotty. Thank you for coming and I look forward seeing you at the next party.

    Will we be able to see anything if its cloudy?

    September 7, 2013

  • Yves

    There seem to be a limit on how many people I can reach personally for updates on tonight party. I apologize for those I was not able to reach directly. I hope I get to see you all tonight.

  • Yves

    As Scotty suggested we are changing the subject of the party!
    We are having a Lightning Thunderstorm Party with Elektro ambiance!

    September 7, 2013

  • Yves

    Ok, So it looks like we have Still about 25 - 30 people that like to come for the party. So lets do it and dance in the rain!!! I suggest to wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty in case it rains a lot. The driveway can get a bit muddy.

    I vote to meet in spite of the weather.

    My husband and I will be attending. We are new to the state and area and are excited to meet people interested in science!

    At 2 pm I will post a "no go/let's do it anyway"

    It looks like Thunderstorm is coming our way for tomorrow. So we could still have a good time and get to see the telescope but there is a very good chance that we will not be able to look at the sky. I suggest we vote on yes or no for the party tomorrow knowing that there is a good chance that it will be raining. Please let me know what you like to do before 2 pm tomorrow.

    Thank you, Yves, for inviting us to join your group for this. It sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't decided whether to bring a side dish or a dessert yet.
