Mark your calendars! April 7th is the date for the annual one day conference sponsored by the AANC, the Astronomical Association of Northern California. This year the event will be held at the new Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland. The theme this year, The Northern California Astronomy Club Conference, will showcase the unique astronomy clubs and give everybody the opportunity to exchange ideas and get to know each other and see what their fellow astronomers look like during the daytime!
Features in development include:
One special planned feature will be the first (annual?) Full Moon Daytime Indoor Messier Marathon, using the Ask Jeeves Planetarium Zeiss Universarium Mark VIII star-ball projector. Join the fun, and bring your binoculars!
Pre-registration by April 1 is $20 for adults, $10 for ages 10-18. Registration is available at the door for $25. More information is available online at http://www.aanc-astronomy.org.
