Attention all HAS members! You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming club picnic and star party at the Columbus dark site. We have some special activities lined up especially for novice observers this year. If you've never been out to the Columbus site, this would be a great night to visit! You'll have a chance to get better acquainted with your fellow members, enjoy the (hopefully) cooling fall weather, and most of all, enjoy a chance to truly see the night sky.
2:00 PM: Gates unlocked
3:00 PM: Caravan to the site for new members
We will meet at the Chevron station in Columbus (exit 696) at 3:00PM and caravan to the site. If you need help finding the way, join the caravan!
4:00 PM: Site orientation with Bob Rogers
You don’t need to have taken the orientation prior to coming. Bob will be offering orientation right on site. Please bring a red light flashlight to protect others night vision.
5:00 PM: Picnic
HAS chefs will demonstrate their culinary magic on a barbecue grill. Also, we'll have some door prizes for old hands and newbies!
  • Constellation tour. Start learning the night sky

  • Novice assistance: set up and alignment of scopes, suggested list of objects to find, help with star hopping

  • Open observatory. HAS members will be operating the club's observatory scopes and sharing interesting sights

Light windows
Midnight and 2:00 AM if you want to leave
