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 (www.rascnb.ca). 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.
