The Prescott Astronomy Club was founded in 1974 to spread the gospel of Astronomy and associates sciences to the masses in our area. PAC’s outreach program has provided as many as 51 event per year and continues to faithfully serve the public interest in all things Universal!
But it is not all education, observing, and explaining the deep dark secrets of the cosmos… there is also METASIG. Years ago, Marilyn Unruh realized that in addition to staying up till the wee hours staring into telescopes, astronomers are also social creatures who also enjoy good food, conversation and interaction with folks of similar interests… thus METASIG was born!
METASIG is a social dinning event routinely takes place on the second Wednesday of most months. A local eatery is selected and at 5:00 PM interested folks gather to dine, talk and enjoy an evening with their friends. The standard joke is someone will stand up during the evening and say “Astronomy” then sit down and the socializing continues! The Prescott area has a wonderful variety of restaurants and Marilyn keeps the variety in mind as we frequent these great establishments.
Folks are asked to register for a METASIG event so the restaurants can arrange seating, and the rest is simple, just show up, order your food, chow down and have a great time. Sign-up sheets are available at PAC events and you can always email Marilyn if you miss an event and still wish to attend.
