The Public Astronomy Lecture Series (PALS) is an astronomical outreach program of Hudnall Planetarium intended to keep the public informed of recent news, events and discoveries related to astronomy and space science. The series consists of monthly programs presented by instructors, experts, and other academic and scientific professionals. Each lecture is open to the public.

The next lecture of the series will be held at the TJC Main Campus in Rogers Student Center, Apache Room 2 on Saturday, September 22, 2007, beginning at 7:00 PM. The presentation will be given by Justin Parrish on the topic of "The Bright Side of Dark Matter". Justin Parrish is the former president of the Astronomical Society of East Texas. The lecture will take a look into techniques used to find matter that we cannot see.

Following the lecture, as weather permits, the Astronomical Society of East Texas will host a Star Party for naked-eye and telescopic viewing of the night-time sky. Large and small telescopes will be on hand for viewing the moon, planets, and interesting sky objects. Astronomical Society members will also be available for questions and discussions concerning telescopes, constellations, and celestial happenings.

Seating for each lecture is limited, and doors will open one-half hour before each lecture. Advance tickets may be purchased at the TJC Cashier's Office in the White Administrative Services Building on the TJC Main Campus. Admission is $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for students and senior adults. Hudnall Planetarium is located in the heart of the Tyler Junior College main campus near the intersection of Mahon Avenue and Lake Street. Free parking is available.
