General Body Meeting: Fifth meeting of Fall 2017!

Join AAS in Bryant Hall 217 on Monday, November 6 at 7pm for a lesson on Observing Strategy! We will go over the details every aspiring observer needs to know like what to look out for in atmospheric and weather conditions, materials that they should bring, and how to make the most of a clear night with a strong telecope. This meeting serves as a general lesson as well as specific preparation for our upcoming trip to Rosemary Hill Observatory. For this reason, this GBM is mandatory for all interested in attending the RHO trip. (Message Megan if an exemption is needed.) Come out for a great lesson that will set up any observer for success!

Upcoming event: Rosemary Hill Observatory

All our lessons on astrphotography and observing strategy will come to use on our trip to UF's Rosemary Hill Observatory! We will be going on Saturday, November 18 with the first few groups getting there around 8:30pm to set up for observing. We will share all the amazing photos from the night of observing shortly after!
