The very popular TAAS program for beginners to astronomy summer observing session will occur on Friday July 14, 2107, led by Dee Friesen. Due to the late sunset, this session begins at 8:00 pm.
The location is the All Saints of North America Orthodox Church at 10440 Fourth Street NW, Albuquerque, just south of the El Pinto Mexican restaurant on the south side of the street. The church is very eager to support the FAB 50 program and has a meeting hall that can be used for the initial presentation of the night sky, for the social hour after observing and lots of parking space. The church is in a nice dark location to observe the night sky.
The TAAS Fabulous 50 Program is a set of four events spread across a calendar year (one for each season) in which a beginner to astronomy learns to locate 50 of the most prominent night sky objects, including stars, constellation and asterisms. The program also serves the curious folks who just want to know what astronomy is all about!
All the details along with the latest map of the night sky are available on the TAAS web site, www.TAAS.org. Click on the Fabulous 50 link on the left side of the homepage. Questions can be directed to Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org
