you curious about upcoming PRIVATE events? Consider joining PAS.
There are a bunch of really awesome private events for just PAS
Members, that may interest you.  

the Phoenix Astronomical Society and be part of something Spacial!

a description of some of the Private events you might want to attend
(as PAS Members):

– Night Sky Training Sessions. It was decided that several PAS
members are interested in learning how to find objects in the night
sky. So, PAS is starting these events on nights that we are at Mike's
home in Carefree, with the intent of helping fellow PAS members learn
how to find objects in the night sky. Watch for these events to be
listed in the PAS Website Calendar as NSTSin the title of the event. You must 
be a current PAS Member to be
involved in these events, and we need Teachers as well as Students to
make these events a success. So, even if you know a lot of objects in
the night sky, don't feel you need to stay home when we can use your
expertise to learn more about the night sky. Please read about these
events in the forums at this link: 
http://www.pasaz.org/forums/showthread.php?t=732- Member's only link.

– Cuttin' Edge Observatory Star Parties. Chris is opening up his
remote Observatory in Mayer to allow PAS Members to do star parties
at that location. He and I will be setting up dates for these events.
Watch for them on the PAS Website Calendar marked as CEO
PAS Members only. Some additional info about CEO's can be read in
this forum thread: 
http://www.pasaz.org/forums/showthread.php?t=558&highlight=cuttin+edge– Members 
only link.  

– Virtual Star Parties. At the Meeting of the minds on Mar 28,
Chris mentioned and showed us new software that would make editing
astrophotos easier and more fun. He and I are working to set up the
next VSP's. Watch for them on the PAS Website Calendar listed as VSP
The first event will be at Chris's home in Goodyear. This type of
event has 2 parts to it. 1) learn to use the software to control
Chris's scope, to set up your photo session. 2) After you have
acquired the number of photos you wish to use to make your final
image, Chris will do classes on processing those photos, through this
new software, to help you achieve your best end result. Both session
are separate events, and will be listed as such. So the VSP event is
the acquiring of the images. VSP
TS (Private)will be the Training Session part of this type of event. And VSP
IP (Private)will be the Image Processing portion of the event. These sessions
will be a party so bring a snack to share, and a drink to share. They
could be some very long nights. These events can be held anyplace
that has a fast internet connection. PAS Members only. This link in
the PAS Forums has additional info about these events. You may wish
to read about it. http://www.pasaz.org/forums/showthread.php?t=322– Members 
Only Link.

– Estrella Observatory Star Parties. Yves and I have set up a star
party at Estrella Observatory for every month of 2013. They are
listed on the PAS Website Calendar as EOSP
There is always a potluck before this event. PAS Members only.

Antenna's– What is Antenna's? Several PAS members ask me what this listing
on the PAS Website Calendar is for. Antenna's is a location that is
about 100 Miles from Phoenix in which serious observers with
telescopes will go to get away from the Phoenix light pollution. It
is a public location, as in no one owns it but it has been used by
many clubs in Arizona as a great dark sky observing location. If you
wish to attend, we ask that you talk to Eric or Sam about the event
before going to it. Why? Because Star Party Etiquette is a must.
Members of other clubs use this location to do astrophotography. They
are there to spend the night in total darkness. So, if you plan to
attend this type of event, we want you to be aware of what people are
doing down there at that location, plus use proper star party
etiquette, and prepare your vehicle not to have any white light come
on at all when you open the doors. It is advised that you arrive
before sundown and not plan to leave until dawn. There are no
facilities down there, so it is a bring your own everything event.
And it is not a PAS only event. The location is open to anyone. So,
check with Sam or Eric before heading down there, and be courteous to
other dark seeking observers. These events are listed on our calendar
as Antenna's as not to draw too much attention to these events. But
those who do this event on a regular basis, know what to look for on
the calendar.
