William Brydone Jack (Fredericton Astronomy)

We have our meetings from September through June each year. We are now busy helping out at the 5 summer star parties hosted by RASC NB ( Please come on out and support us and get some hands on experience with telescopes and talk to amateur astronomers. Mactaquac also has a "Space weekend" as part of their event... fun for all! If not at the star party then see you September 11th!

note: actual telescope observing is based on clear skies. If it is cloudy or raining we will do a whats up talk and Q&A session regarding telescopes but no observing.
