Be sure and come visit us at the Star Party. It will be from 5:30-9:45 on Friday, October 11th at ACC’s Round Rock campus. ACCHaoS will be set up in the lobby of building 2000. Our good friends from the Austin Planetarium will be there with the Discovery Dome, their mobile planetarium. If you haven’t checked out the planetarium shows, they are really awesome.
At 7:00 in room 3339 in building 3000, Jim Heath will conduct another of his popular talks. This one is titled “On the Shoulders of Giants,” a look at the history of science.
Then at 8:00, the observing deck on building 3000 will open, and everyone can have a look at the night sky through the three big ACC telescopes. What else will we see? I’m not sure, but there’ll be ACC faculty and staff on hand to guide you and answer questions.
