Next event: August 17th meeting

Our next scheduled event is our monthly meeting on August 17th at the Science Factory planetarium. Due to its proximity to the eclipse, we don't have a speaker scheduled for this meeting; instead we will hold an open forum for club members and visitors to discuss last-minute eclipse planning. The meeting starts at 7:00.

Thank you to the Canadian Meteorlogical Center and for this forecast of our observing conditions:
