This will be the last Members evening of the 2018/19 observing season and the Moon will again be up.  However,  it should be a very good nice for observing planets, especially Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars.  Fred Stevenson will talk about our own Solar System, including origins and characteristics of the planets.


Remember to wrap up warm, wear appropriate footwear and to bring a torch to see your way back to your car. DIRECTIONS
