A Note From the Novice Program Chairperson

Interested in astronomy and don’t know where to begin? Well, you’ve found the right place!

Why not come and join us as a guest? We can help you learn to use your telescope or binoculars. And if you don’t own an instrument, we can give you some practical advice on how and where to begin.

Should you become a member, we’ll even loan you a telescope to get you started. We’ll have star parties during the year and you can have an opportunity to learn from experienced observers.

We have a meeting for the beginner at 6:30 pm on the first Friday of each month at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center located at 1414 Wirt Rd. This meeting is followed by a General Membership meeting at 7:15 at which all sorts of interesting presentations are featured.

Want to learn more about what we’ll be doing this year? Point your mouse to Meetings and then to Novice Meetings or send me an e-mail for a personal invitation

The schedule is not cast in concrete, so if there is a consensus for change we will do so. Please plan to attend. All HAS members are invited; you don’t have to be a novice! Any questions may be directed to me, Debbie Moran.

We expect to hold several Novice Star Parties during the year. These activities will be announced in advance and, of course, all HAS members are invited.
