Phoenix Monsoon Season

Phoenix Monsoon Season
by Terri, Event Coordinator for PAS

During the summer months, from May 15 to Sept 30, the Phoenix Monsoon season is here. What this means is that in Phoenix, at a drop of a hat, the weather that is clear and sunshine in the morning, can turn to windy, possibly rainy, and all around yucky for astronomy by afternoon
and evening. So, a lot of events we have during the summer months, even though they are the better months for observing because of temperatures, get canceled. If you plan to attend our events this summer, be sure to RSVP as often as you can. If we cancel an event, we'd like you to know about it before you drive out to the site and find no one there. In the calendar on our site, you will find a place to RSVP your attendance. You can also RSVP by phone to the proper contact for that event, or by email, preferably by the day before. This will keep you in the loop as to if an event with PAS is going to happen or not due to weather. We would love to see you at our events. Most of our events are open to the public and FREE. Keep in touch with PAS to experience more of the awesome evening viewing.
