UTA Site for Local Astronomy Day Observance

NGC 206 and Star Clouds of Andromeda courtesy of Bob and Janice FeraAstronomy Day is an event that was started back in 1973 in an effort to bring the general public in contact with hobbyists, enthusiasts, and professionals to raise awareness of the study. It happens in the Spring and Fall on a date that falls closest to the first quarter moon.

This year, the University of Texas – Arlington will join with The Ft. Worth Astronomical Society and The Texas Astronomical Society to give people a chance to view demonstrations, listen to lectures, and do a little observing. Amateur astronomers will have their telescopes set up outside the planetarium, weather permitting. They are also looking for donations of books and other astro-related items for a children’s free raffle and need volunteers at the registration and raffle table. Please contact www.texasastro.org or www.fortworthastro.com if you can help!
