Hello All,

Agenda: High school graduates going into first year university. Presentation, stargazing and demos.

RASC London Centre members are invited to bring their telescopes and set them up on the observation deck (and sometimes on the sidewalk on the south side) of the Cronyn Observatory.

The Moon will be at one day prior to full in the evening sky. Jupiter and Saturn will be visible. Deep sky objects visible include the yellow and blue double star Albireo and the Ring Nebula (M57).
