Everyday Spacer FAQs

In General
Q What does Everyday Spacer mean?

A Everyday Spacer was meant to be a place holder on my blog until I figured out a better name for it. After awhile, it seemed to fit because I love to show regular folks how they can personally and directly participate in space exploration, science and astronomy. I checked for the domain name: EverydaySpacer.com and it was available, so I bought it!

Q When was Everyday Spacer Founded?

A The First Post To the Everyday Spacer blog: Visit a NASA Center Near You was created on August 28, 2012 though we are still in what I call the ‘building a following’ phase. We are establishing what you are looking for and continually adding to our Services. Thank you for being there to serve!

Q Thanks Pam for connecting with me…I am new at this and not to sure what to say or do. So tell me please….what is Everyday Spacer?

A You’re welcome Sandy!

If you are new to meetup, just play with it a little. I know they change things sometimes though not as much or as radically as some other sites and usually for a reason, not just to change things!

As for our meetups, I show regular folks how to personally and directly participate in space exploration, science and astronomy.

Is there anything in particular that you’d like to learn? We are now creating events and tools just for you! I hope you like the list of events so far. I’m continually working on doing a better job for you!

Keep me posted,

Pam

Q I’m wondering what kind of events you have in this meetup. Nicole

A Hey Nicole!

I post all the great things going on and on topic I can find in the area and I send email to the group if an event is not local.

I’m working on creating events and tools just for you too!

Q Hi Pam, is there anything you recommend I bring? Air mattress sweater etc.? I might bring a friend with me waiting to hear back.

A Hey Graham! I checked and it looks like you are interested in the next meteor shower, right?

You know, the best thing for this event is a clear, dark site! I’ve even sat on the hood of the car with a fleece blanket around my shoulders and enjoyed this activity.

Check the weather for sure! A good resource is the Clear Sky Chart here: http://www.cleardarksky.com/csk/ Just browse around for a location near your observing site.

Of course, you can go full out and bring snacks, hot cocoa, etc. I might avoid the air mattress myself. It would just encourage me to sleep! I know a lot of people bring out lawn chairs. You definitely want to be comfortable and assume it will be colder than you think. Layers work well so you can put more of them on as the night goes by and you settle in.

It’s a lot colder than you think it will be just standing in a field at night.

I hope that helps. Anytime, I’m here to help!

Pam
