The first event is planned for Tuesday Sept 25, 2018 when the Moon rises at 6:24 PM

The next 3 nights in this series are NOT as per the shown MeetUp schedule. They'll be: Oct 25 (6-8 PM), Nov 23 (6:30-8:30 PM) & Dec 23 (7-9 PM)

This MeetUp is designed to be a mooonthly event to watch the Full Moon rise. BYO blanket to sit on, rug up and bring a warm drink or picnic to suit the season. I'll field any questions you have about astronomy, space and science all the while watching the sky through my 14 inch telescope to look at stars, planets and much else. We could see shooting stars, the International Space Station, space debris, the Hubble Space just never know (well, I do!).
