From: Howard T.

Announcing a new Meetup for Vancouver Astronomy Meetup Group!

What: SFU Double Header: Solar and Starry with CBC TV

When: Tuesday, July 20,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Simon Fraser University
University Dr
Burnaby, BC V5A 1S6

Join us for a viewing of the Sun at 1:30PM on Tuesday July 20, when we expect to also host Bob Nixon of CBC TV for an interview on the planned SFU Astronomical Teaching Observatory and Science Outreach Centre. If you'd like to be part of the scene, please join us, whatever the weather! We'll have the RASC solar telescope on hand.

We will also host an SFU star party starting at 9:00PM. Both events will take place at our usual location at SFU, next to the Terry Fox statue in the outdoor AQ courtyard.

Full details including a map with directions are available on the "Starry Nights @ SFU" web site:

The SFU Media and Public Relations unit will also be shooting a video sequence on our events tomorrow!

Please also note: A final decision on whether to hold the evening star party will be announced Tuesday afternoon no later than 5PM, according to the weather at that time. Please look for an update on our web site tomorrow afternoon. The solar viewing will take place clear skies or cloudy, because of the CBC TV interview.
