Joining the Public Notification Group

William Shaheen
 

This morning, I suggested everyone join the Public Notification Group so we can have just one public notice that goes to everyone and so members could see what the public sees the way they see it.

The easiest way to do this is to visit https://supermtnastro.com/ and click on the link where it says, "To  be added to a notification list to receive emails of upcoming events, cancellations, or other notices, ​please visit our public Notification Group and submit your email address. 

Or, just click this direct link: Notification Group

If you get some sort of cryptic message it's probably because you are already a member.

Public Star Party at Lost Dutchman State Park - Saturday, December 28, 2019

 

On Saturday, December 28, 2019, we will (hopefully) host a regularly scheduled public Star Party, our 4th of the current season, at Lost Dutchman State Park from 6:30 to 9:00pm MST. (Current schedule attached.)

At this point in time, the weather forecast again looks questionable, according to the current 10-day forecast, seen here:
But, as we have seen in the past, it could be acceptably clear come Saturday evening. The temperature, however, is very concerning.

So, we recommend checking the website, http://supermtnastro.com/ later in the week. If there are any changes, a notification email will be sent to this group by noon.

As we did in November, we will be using the Cholla Day Use Area and Park staff will direct visitors to the correct location. Please see the Map and Directions page here: http://supermtnastro.com/maps-directions (the map is showing the old Saguaro Day Use Area location - please follow Park Staff's directions when you arrive at the park).

The predicted temperature appears to be a very chilly in the evening. So, dress warm, bring something to sit on (we have no seating), and bring a red covered flashlight. (We can help you with that.)
 
Parking in the Observing area, where telescopes will be set-up, is reserved for club members who will be hosting and bringing equipment.
 
Lost Dutchman State Park staff will be present to assist and direct visitors to the appropriate parking area and we are grateful to them.
 
Note  - Lost Dutchman State Park assesses a $10 per vehicle entrance fee, except for hosts, presenters and volunteers, unless you have an annual pass, which is good for ALL Arizona State Parks.  

You can purchase an annual pass at the park, or visit http://azstateparks.com/ for more information.  
 
For further Star Party information and details, see the schedule here: http://supermtnastro.com/  
 
And, again, for a map with directions and instructions, please visit: http://supermtnastro.com/maps-directions
 
Thank you. And, as always, we look forward to seeing you under the stars.
