Good day all,
Great meeting last night. We started the evening with Oakley’s being presented with a telescope from the club. Based on feedbacks received, the club wanted to reward this young lad for his enthusiasm and eager to learn.
We continued the evening with Ian presenting a very informative Power Point on his progress building a backyard observatory. Following Ian’s presentation we watched a very informative documentary regarding light pollution.
After viewing the video Don presented Margaret Burbage, a pioneer in the world of astronomy who fought for women equality. We ended the evening with a presentation regarding Betelgeuse and what could happen to it in its later part of life.
In ending I would like to remind everyone to send a group email to advise all members you will be at the observation site on a certain night. It’s definitely more enjoyable than being in the middle of an empty field.
