Next Meetup

Everyday Spacer Star Party
On Saturday October 6th, weather permitting, I'll set up for observing - first the Sun while it's in the sky then the stars, planets, etc. after dark - near the Satwiwa Indian Center. You are invited to join me. I'll have information to help you find objects in the night sky and we'll look for satellites passing overhead. =========================*========================= Need a Red Flashlight? Take a Look at These! Preserve your night vision while observing! :) =========================*========================= This is a fairly dark site and easily accessible. Bring binoculars or telescopes if you have them and DRESS IN LAYERS for comfort - even a warm day seems cool at night standing around in a field. RAIN CANCELS THIS EVENT. If it's clear or clear-ish, I'll go out observing that night. Questions & curiosity welcome! Free and Open to the Public! This is an Everyday Spacer sponsored event! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To find the Star Party, take Lynn Road off of the 101 toward the coast. At Via Goleta, turn left and you'll see the wood and rocks entry to the park. Drive through that gate and turn right into the first parking lot you come to. I should be there by 6pm or earlier to observe the Sun and watch for the planet(s) and stars. I'll make the go/no go decision around noon that day! I'll update the meetup page here. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :) Everyone is welcome!

What we're about

Everyday Spacer is a Meetup for anyone with even a mild interest in space exploration, astronomy and similar topics.

You should join if you would like to go to a star party and look through a variety of telescopes and see objects in the night sky. Or maybe you like hearing lectures about interesting, updated topics from notable engineers and scientists.

Not your thing?

How about some hands-on/'maker' type events?

We'll list local events in each of these areas and more (see our topics list below).

If you decide to join, you can expect us to list as many events as we learn about in Thousand Oaks and beyond. We'd love your help of course. And, if you become a member, you'll be expected to actually participate in something we list!

This is important.

It's not a 'meetup' if you never attend an event.

Please be sure to R.S.V.P. 'YES' if you intend to go. A 'NO' or no answer will be considered the same. If you happen to show up at an event with limited resources in spite of that, you may be turned away and we'll all be sad about that!

Mainly, we want to show you ways you can personally and directly participate in this exciting area and have FUN doing it!

If you ever need anything from us, do call or write. We'll include contact information anytime you join and we send you the traditional 'welcome' message - usually within a day or two.

Thank you and enjoy the events we already found and listed for you.
