Put down the telescope and come Off the Field. Are you looking for a bit of mid week astronomical socializing? Are you tired of trying to discern one astronomer's voice from another on the observing field in the pitch dark? Want to get to know your fellow AAS members and other Austin astronomers? Join us for Astronomy off the Field on the last Thursday of the Month starting in 2015. Meet up with fellow astronomers to talk shop and then some. Get to know their other interests, alternative hobbies, relax with a drink and food and have a little fun; if not a lot. Kicking off Thursday January 29 7:00 p.m. - 9:00p.m. Red's Porch 3508 S. Lamar Blvd. Austin, Texas 78704 All ages welcome.
