    Once monthly, the SFAA hosts distinguished guest speakers who are leaders in the fields of astronomy, physics and related disciplines and they present to SFAA Members the latest developments from cutting-edge scientific programs.

    Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are presenting our lecture online rather that at our usual lecture location at the Randall Museum Theater.

    Topic: “Living with a Star: the Sun, Space Weather, and Our Place in the Stellar Neighborhood”

    Speaker: Dr. Phyllis Whittlesey, Research Scientist, UC Berkeley Space Sciences Lab

    IMPORTANT: Announcements and lecture will begin at 7:00 PM, with users initiating online connections at 6:30pm.

    • Mt. Tam Rock Springs Parking Area

    Due to the ongoing pandemic, the CA State Parks has limited the total number of people we are allowed to have at our star parties. This limit, 25 people, will be the biggest change. This change will also mean that our members are limited on bringing guests. Individual Memberships can only bring themselves. Family Memberships and Supporting Members can bring themselves and one guest (two people, TOTAL). That guest must arrive in the same car as the member. If two members arrive together, both members' Tam parking permits must be displayed on the dashboard. There is also no transferring of parking permits. The named member is the only one that is allowed to use it.

    Requirement: Please read and comply with these Special Instructions.
