Going to take Nov 11- 18 off and already have the plane tickets. Spending a few days in phoenix with friends. I hope to make it up to Lowell and the mirror lab at a min. Any other suggestions or planned groups?

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.

She has been writing and editing the Planetary Society Blog since 2005, reporting on space news, explaining planetary science, and sharing beautiful space photos. She appears weekly on the Society's Planetary Radio podcast, answering listener questions or rounding up the latest space news from the blog.

They were last year, although there was some delay as the ticket sellers in the box office were not scheduled to arrive until the "official" starting time (ii AM IIRC), and there was a large crowd waiting to get in several hours earlier. But the Convention Center reacted well, and we were only delayed less than an hour as the management rounded up staff to handle the ticket sales and entry process.

As a former professor at the College of Optical Sciences and, later, a vendor for the lab, I have been in the mirror lab many times. If you want to see state of the art, big (really, really big) telescope mirror making in action, do not miss the mirror lab tour while you are in Tucson. The lab isn't that easy to get into so this is a great opportunity. They are doing some very cool stuff and the time it takes will be well worth it.

Hey Jim...the reason I asked is because I went to the link provided above, but couldn't find the tickets. However, I just checked again and I see that they will be available Tuesday. The information was probably there, but I missed it the first go 'round. See ya' in about a month!
