During the last few days we have been looking for our next event! Sadly it was not very easy, but after a few days of thinking we have came up with an idea, #PATS2009.
#PATS2009 is based on the Pacific Astronomy and Telescope Show, which premiered in September of 2008 with large crowds of amateur astronomers enjoying dozens of presenters, exhibitors, and vendors. This year hundreds (if not thousands) of people astronomy friendly or not will enjoy talks by astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Astronomy Magazine’s Stephen James O’Meara and many more! Along with Solar Telescope viewing, vendors, workshops, and of course the company of fellow astronomers and Astronomy enthusiasts.
Sadly none of the current AstroTwitterers are attending PATS, but we have one volunteer who might be able to tweet while at the event! Hopefully his Blackberry along with his computer will work while within the Pasedena Convention Center, if not we might have to just cancel #PATS2009! =( So we are looking for any one who will be attending the Pacific Astronomy and Telescope Show to please contact us! Send a tweet to @AstroTwtr or an e-mail to moopytheastronomer@yahoo.com.
Hopefully all will work out with #PATS2009! More information including Twitter accounts ...
