Please come out to the Observatory on Sunday evening for the Lunar Eclipse.  Starts at 8pm, and gates open at 7:30.


Practice taking photographs, or learn how to use your phone or DSLR.

I had hoped to use this evening as a "warm up" for the Lunar Eclipse two nights later.


However, the current forecast is not looking very good for either night.


The decision to cancel Friday night (the 18th) will be made at, or shortly after, the Board meeting on the evening of the 16th. 


At the moment, Eclipse evening is still on and the gate will be open at 7:30pm.  This should give everyone plenty of time to set up their own telescopes, or grab one of the Centre's Loaner scopes.
