Tonight is a GO!

AAC volunteers needed for a Stargazing Outreach @ Hickory Ranch. 

The Full Snow Moon will be rising over the prairie at 6:42 pm!

Volunteer members with and without telescopes please register here for entry to the event and for updates. I can still put volunteers to work even if you don't have a telescope!

A GO or NO GO will be emailed to registrants the day of the event.  You need to be registered for me to send you updates!!

Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park is hosting an outreach for stargazing by the Alachua Astronomy Club, weather permitting, at Hickory Ranch. 

Visitors (not AAC volunteers) need to register with Friends of Paynes Prairie at their website  then click events for registration.  

Please plan on being set up by 5:00 pm. Sunset is at 6:24 pm.  Event is scheduled to start at 6:00 pm and finish at 9:00 pm.  We may go a bit later if weather is accommodating. 

Volunteers should arrive no later than 5:00 pm. Pick out several BRIGHT sky objects and note a few details about them to share.  The moon will be at 99% illumination.   Limited ac power is available with a long extension cord if needed.  Temps fall after dark so dress warmly.

Point of contact for Alachua Astronomy Club is Lisa Eager, Star Party Coordinator @ 352-318-4074.
