Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association: Evening Under the Stars

Evening Under the Stars Observing at the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association (TAAA) Chiricahua Astronomy Complex.

Want to stargaze from a dark site where the band of the Milky Way is clearly visible across the sky? You see so many stars it is hard to pick out the constellations. Twice per year, we open our TAAA Chiricahua Astronomy Complex (Turkey Creek area near Chiricahua National Monument) to the public for an observing session. You can observe through a telescope with a 40″ mirror and see galaxies over 100 million light years away. We will have several large telescopes to observe with.

Our Spring “Evening Under the Stars” will be Saturday April 23rd 2022. The gate will be open at 6pm with activities starting 6:30 pm and observing at 7:30 pm. Come join us for an exciting evening of astronomical observing. The site is about 90 minutes SE of Tucson near the Chiricahua National Monument. If you have friends/family that live in that area, let them know. The event is weather dependent.

Reservations are required. Please email John Kalas at jckalas@cox.net for reservations and directions. Please include number of people & vehicles in your group. Space is limited.
