The Astronomy Club will host a star party at your location in the Tucson area. We will bring along 2 or 3 telescopes and a few activities to help demonstrate astronomical objects in the night sky. Professional and amateur astronomers will guide you through the wonders of the night sky for 4-5 hours and inspire you to learn more about the universe around us! Daytime solar observing is also a possibility. Great for business meetings, birthday parties, conferences, and other large events! Proceeds from the star party go entirely to club projects and activities. Please use the Contact Us page if you want more information or to arrange a star party. Please contact Allison at towner @ email . arizona . edu for more information.
The next Sabino Canyon Star Party is June 2nd 2012
See our Outreach page for more information.
Every third Friday of the month we hold a sci-fi movie night. Some are bad sci-fi movie nights, and some are classic sci-fi movie nights. For instance, the February 2012 movie will be Sharktopus, and March 2012 will be the Wrath of Khan.
On January 27th we held our first game night of the semester; we had a blast playing our new Big Bang Theory Trivia board game - Thanks Lindsay for your awesome Christmas present!
I know, I know, astronomers aren’t supposed to do anything except sit in front of a telescope or a computer! But we do have our human streaks every now and then, and we like to get out and play some sports! This semester we will be holding Ultimate Frisbee Outings (UFOs) as well as hikes around Tucson, and possibly other sports like volleyball. Stay posted!
First UFO of Spring Semester 2012!
Hey everyone!! Get ready for our first Ultimate Frisbee Outing of the semester at 4pm on Friday, February 10th on the Mall!
