Special Event Notice - Join local members of the RASC NB provincial astronomy club on on October 7, 2016 Kick off your Thanksgiving weekend with an evening of stargazing with members of the RASC NB
provincial astronomy club. Starting at 7:00 PM with a brief talk at the Interpretative Shelter, we will move to the
nearby observing ground where several telescopes will be set up for views of Moon and Saturn. When twilight fades to
darkness we will see star clusters, distant galaxies, and nebulous clouds from both newborn and dying stars. Some
telescopes will be equipped with adapters to allow you to capture close-ups of the Moon with your phone camera. The
amateur astronomers will be happy to show you the constellations and answer your questions on telescopes and stargazing.
