The 500th episode of Astronomy Cast is fast approaching and we at the WSH Crew are planning a weekend-long event to help celebrate this milestone with Fraser, Pamela, members of the Crew, and, of course, our loyal viewers.
All fans of Astronomy Cast are invited to join us in Edwardsville, IL, on September 15 & 16 to participate in a special weekend full of science and astronomy-related festivities, culminating in the live recording of the 500th episode of Astronomy Cast.
You’ll meet both Pamela and Fraser, along with folks from the WSH Crew and the CosmoQuest families, such as Dr. Morgan Rehnberg and Composer David Joseph Wesley. As an added bonus, Fraser is planning a special live Q&A episode of one of Universe Today‘s shows.
Other weekend activities are being discussed and planned, such as fluid painting of tiny planets with Pamela (small additional fee for supplies will apply), and outings to local attractions (guests are responsible for their own admission charges). Weather permitting, there will be stargazing Saturday evening. And who knows, maybe Eddie will make an appearance or two throughout the weekend!
Travel and lodging are not included – each guest is responsible for their own transportation and hotel! Hotel information is available below.
Online registration is open until Sunday, August 26, for the non-refundable $200 registration fee. Everyone who registers will receive a goodie bag full of memorabilia from the weekend. If you’d like to attend and haven’t registered by August 26, a limited number of registrations will be available for $250 on-site. (But if you can, register online so you’ll be guaranteed a spot!)
Watch for additional options to be added here as things get planned!
The AC500 Committee is happy to announce that we have selected the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Edwardsville as our official home base for the weekend.
