Next event: September 21st Meeting: "The Sky

Our next scheduled event is our monthly meeting on Thursday, September 21st. Larry Deckman will present his slide show, "The Sky's Greatest Hits," which features much more than just the cool stuff we look at through telescopes. This show is intended to maximize the wow factor, with astonishing pictures and videos showing the aurora, comets, clouds, a solar eclipse, and other deep-sky wonders. This is a don't-miss presentation!

The meeting starts at 7:00 at the Science Factory planetarium. Arrive a little early to visit and make sure you get a seat.

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