    Unfortunately there will be no discussion of the newly discovered quasar until after November: Expert testimony needed on the subject.

    I will be at the main doors of the Planetarium until 7pm. I'll be holding a meetup sign.

    Thanks for being so welcoming, but unfortunately something came up and I am not going to be able to make this one. I'll eventually get to one though! :)

    Hi. Since I'm new to the group, is there somewhere the group will meet before the start of the meeting.

      Hey Wayne, unfortunately I will not be able to attend this one. I'm still out of town for a work assignment. I'd suggest meeting up at 7.10 inside the museum entrance. Wayne can have a Meetup sign so Amy can find him. Amy, I hope to have the opportunity to meet you at another event! :)

      I can do that. I'll see you and Girish at the next event. Take care.

    Thanks Sara for the update. I'm still going. Let me know if anyone else is still going.

    I'm really excited for this! I'm thinking of joining the RAS too. For those of you who are attending this, how much experience do you have in Astronomy?

      I hear that the RAS has access to good telescopes. I've been looking into buying my first telescope, and I have a couple in mind. Looks like you're going to this event, so perhaps we can talk a little bit more about it when we meet up next week.

      I was taking a telescope building class last year, and was hoping there was something simalar around here. But, like Joanne, I'm a novice.
