Canterbury Astronomical Society
Today a group of us from CAS were lucky enough to take a look around an awesome 747, with a telescope on the back.
Were you at the tour and did you take any pictures? If so please upload them so that we have a record of the event and you might even see them in the CASMag for July.
You can also upload your best photos in the Media | Canterbury Astronomical Society and they will get auto posted to the CAS facebook public page (so that everyone can see them).
Outreach is an important part of the work carried out by CAS. We hold regular public open nights during the winter months. A visit to the observatory is a memorable experience for young and old alike.
The jewel in the crown of the society, the R. F. Joyce Observatory is a unique facility in New Zealand, offering members and visitors access to an array of telescopes at a dark sky site just half an hour from Christchurch City.
Becoming a member of CAS is a great way to meet like minded astronomers and gives you access to a wide array of resources. Whether you are new to the hobby or an old hand, CAS membership has a lot to offer.
