    Hi – I just joined the society in the hopes of seeing the Meteor Showers next Saturday but when I went to register, it was sold out.

    Are you keeping a waiting list? Is there any chance of a “new member” special entry?

    I wish it had noted sold out on all the event pages, not just on Event Brite…

    Thanks for your consideration,

    Marnie

      Your pass was mailed 8/10/2018 via USPS. SFAA coordinators have temporary passes that they can hand out at Mt. Tam for situations such as yours. For members night, you must be on the mountain before sunset.

    We are hoping for clear skies and a great learning time. TY!

    I just renewed my membership on-line. My wife and I plan to be attending the event on Sat night at Mt. Tam. How can I get a parking pass for my car (Black Toyota Venza CA plates 6HDG091). Can you email me as not enough time to get in the mail.
    Thanks

    Can I still join SFAA and come tonight for seeing the Perseid Meteor Shower? How many guests will be allowed with Family Membership?
    Thank you, Scott!

      You can join SFAA online and then come to the members-only star party. SFAA members attending tonight’s event can lend you a temporary parking pass for tonight only. Your permanent parking pass will be sent via USPS.

      Unfortunately, you can only bring immediate family members, no guests. You can attend next week’s public star party on Mt. Tam and bring guests.

        Thank you, Scott. I’ve joined SFAA and my family of 5 including myself will come for tonight’s event. I was unable to find an eventbrite event to rsvp though. I hope this message will suffice. Thanks a bunch.
