Those  who came out on Friday evening to attend  our star gazing  evening  were enthralled by the  close up views of the Moon  and the Rings of Saturn.  We had over one hundred people brave chilly winds to have a unique experience.  The sky cleared enough for us to really see saturn exactly as the photo above (not actually from the night) shows.  We thank Dean Davidson and other members of the astronomical society  for their telescopes and expertise.  A few of us brought our telescopes and got some really good advice form the experts on how to improve our experience with them.   We thank those who provided the  BBQ, which was very welcome  in the cold evening air.   A telescope might be a great idea to put on the list for Santa! img_9839 img_9844 img_9848
