TAAS General Meeting

Join us for the July meeting and find out, as TAAS members David Frizzell and Shane Ramotowski recount their starry night tales and experiences from the Texas Star Party in early June.

Find out what it is like to observe with 450 like- minded amateurs from around the globe in the wilds of the Davis Mountains on a working ranch. The Texas Star Party is one of the largest star parties in the USA, held annually near Fort Davis, Texas in some of the darkest skies in the nation.

As a further recreation of the TSP event, Becky Ramotowski, Master Observer and link with the Astronomical League , will give her account of "Channeling Galileo" and creating modern- day lunar "sketches", as she presented at the star party. FREE and open to the public.
