It’s that time again, on August 2nd, Fremont Peak Observatory will host it’s annual ‘Star-B-Que’, a public event where first you eat, and then you look at the stars! See this link for the official announcement. The picture to the left is from last year, and you can see a good (albeit smoky) time is being had by all. Click on the picture to go to my Picasa Web Albums folder with pictures from last year.
You do not need to be a member of the Observatory Association to come. The Potluck feed starts at 5:00 PM. Please bring a side dish, dessert, salad or your favorite dish to share. Parking is limited, so get there early.
After the food and fun there is the famous “Astronomical Gastronomical” contest, where astronomy-themed dishes are judged on presentation, originality, and (of course) flavor. My oldest daughter was asked to be a judge last year, which she really enjoyed.
There will be a raffle with various items (including the CD I made last year, newly revised and updated for 2008!) If you don’t get one for a raffle item, I’d be happy to burn you one for only $10.
