In case you missed it, 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.
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! We are working on securing a block of rooms at a special rate at a local hotel for the event. Once we have that information, we will update the information here.
Preregistration is now open, and requires a non-refundable $50.00 deposit. Everyone who preregisters – even if you have to cancel – will receive a goodie bag full of memorabilia from the weekend. You may pay the full $200 registration fee, or you have the option of paying $50 now and paying the balance of $150 anytime between now and Aug 15. All fees are due by 30 days before event. Watch for additional options to be added here as things get planned!
If you have any questions, send an email to AC500@wshcrew.space.
We hope to see you in September!
