!!! GREEN LASER USE RULES !!!
Starting in 2015, the club has decided that we will not allow the use of green laser pointers at outreaches that are above the legal limit of 5 milliwatts. If you see someone operating a laser which is brighter than this level, please ask that person to stop using it.

   

The Telescope Workshop meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 PM at the Broder Building at SBMNH. Contact Tim Crawford for more information at E-mail -

Listen to the AU on the radio at KZSB 1290 AM at 9 AM on the second and fourth Monday of each month.


Remember, just help out at six AU outreach events in a year, and your membership gets extended a year, for free!


Here are the AU events scheduled. To get the latest information on schedules, or directions, just contact Chuck at 964-8201 or E-mail - Remember Events are subject to cancellation.
