For those of you that have a chance, you are more than welcome to come out to the Riverside Astronomical Societies dark sky site (GMARS).
If you would like more information or directions, they can be found here. We have two houses, 8 beds, 3 bathrooms, 1 kitchen, internet available, and lots of good people and good times.
Please be sure to come early in the afternoon on Saturday so that everyone can see who you are before it gets dark and you can meet and greet other club members. It will also give you time to eat! That’s right, we will be hosting our usual Star-B-Que Saturday evening. It is free, but if you would like to bring something, it is a pot luck.
No matter what you skill level, you will find something to look at. You don’t even need to bring your own telescope. You can wander around and look through other peoples telescopes. Don’t worry we are a friendly bunch ( except for that SOB of a Club President…wait…that’s me!).
If you would like to set up your own scope, we usually have pads available and there is a whole lot of field that you can also use. There is electricity on the field that is also available. It looks like the weather gods are going to be nice this weekend (the viewing was AWESOME last weekend).
I hope to see you there. If not, I hope you can make an evening of observing somewhere.
