Looking for something amazing to do the night before the Expo?
We have setup a special program with the MT Lemmon Sky Center for Friday night for ASAE visitors to be hosted by world famous astrophotographer Mr Adam Block . Come and look thru their 32-inch Schulman Telescope, and visit the Catalina Sky Survey observatory. Adam will be your guide to the stars.....http://www.scienceandastronomy.com/mt-lemmon-special-skynights-program-with-adam-block/

Another reason not to miss ASAE this year! This just in from the University of Arizona Mirror Lab....http://mirrorlab.as.arizona.edu/

We will be happy to provide mirror lab tours on Thursday, November 14, Friday, November 15th and Monday, November 18th at 1 PM. ASAE rate will be $10 per person. This will be a great opportunity for them as the third of seven mirror casting for the Giant Magellan Telescope began August 24th and the mirror will be about ready to come out of the oven around this time!

Too bad it's not at 2PM. My flight arrives in Phoenix at 11:10AM, so there's no way I can make Tuscon by 1PM. And my flight out Monday is bright and early. Maybe they'll have tours at a different time. I'll have to check on that.
