Throughout 2018, TPAS Society meetings will be held on the second Saturday of each month (except September) at the Society’s Clubrooms, 51 Ahiaruhe Road, Carterton. These regular dates have been selected because most occur near the New Moon. This will allow, weather permitting, telescope viewing of deep space objects following the meeting. In addition, the afternoons can be used, as required, for working bees and other functions.
The monthly programme of lectures and observing sessions will be advertised and open to the public from 7:30pm. The fee per evening for members of the public will be: adults $20; seniors $15; children $5. (Phoenix members free).
