The forecast for this evening is mostly clear with maybe a few clouds, so we will have the scopes outside.  The Moon and Jupiter don't rise until 7.30. We might just get a glimpse of them through the trees towards the end of the meeting. Amongst other things we should be able to see the Andromeda Galaxy M31, Uranus, the Ring Nebula M57, the Pleiades M45 and globular cluster M15 in Pegasus.

Before we go outside I would like to show you the photos I took of stars over the Temple last Thursday night after everyone had gone. If you like one of them we could put it on notices advertising the group to go up around the park.
