Dear Vancouver Astronomy Meetup Subscriber, please take note,

This Thursday June 14 at SFU, starting at 7:30PM:

The tales of two RASCals who caught the annular eclipse and/or transit of Venus!

The RASC Vancouver public lecture for Thursday June 14 will be held at the SFU Burnaby campus, Room SHW10081, in beautiful new Saywell Hall, on the east side of campus, close to parking and the bus stop.

Did you miss the solar eclipse on May 20 due to bad weather? Did you miss the transit of Venus on June 5 due to bad weather? If so, then you are in very good company, and you should particularly enjoy the special format for this month's public meeting of RASC Vancouver! We will hear from two members who travelled to distant locations to catch one or both of these beauties of celestial mechanics!
