*** SIGH! WE SHOWED UP BUT SO, UNEXPECTEDLY, DID THE CLOUDS. LETS HAVE A DO-OVER TONIGHT! ***
The Riverwood Conservancy, Earthshine Astronomy and Space Science Organization and the Mississauga Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada present the CITY STAR PARTY at the RIVERWOOD CONSERVATORY at 9:00 p.m. on WEDNESDAY June 20. This event is free.
Jupiter offers great views as it’s very near opposition – the best time to view the planet. The Moon should offer some great opportunities for images with your cellphone camera! We might catch a glimpse of brilliant Venus before it sets, but Mars and Saturn are up much later, so we’ll miss them this time around. We should get a good look at some colourful double stars.
