SAS April 10th Meeting
Stockton Astronomical Society presents:
Striking Sparks Telescope Award
We will start the evening with the presentation of a telescope to the sole recipient of our 2014 Telescope Awards Program.
Public Star Party Workshop
This will be a "how to" session on making our community outreach efforts – school or general public star parties - as effective and educational as possible. It will also try to demystify the process to help clear up the perception that you need a vast knowledge of astronomy to be a useful participant.
Our Public Outreach Coordinator, Doug Christensen and SAS President Eric Holland will lead the workshop.
If time allows, Eric Holland will start the dialog he has suggested on page 8 of the newsletter – your opportunity to ask questions or offer suggestions on ways to improve your astronomy club.
