STAR PARTY TONIGHT! Be there! 11/15 5pm to 10pm

Good morning,

I just realized I have been advertising the wrong time for tonight's star party.
We are starting at 5pm...... to catch Venus & Jupiter before they set
behind the over pass over SR 51.
If you can make it by then, that will be great.
Other items we may view will be the Orion nebula,
and possibly some Galaxies and Star Clusters.

2 scopes are scheduled to be there,
and as of right now, Noon, we have 10 RSVP's
and one other PAS Helper attending.

Would love to see you at this event.
RSVP up to 2pm. I don't think we will be canceling
the event, so if you want to come and it is after 2pm
we will be there until 10pm or until the crowd leaves.
If everyone departs earlier than 10pm we may depart as well, early.

See you over there.
RSVP's after 2pm will be by phone only. If I don't answer, leave a message
and i will call you back to confirm. Thanks
