The KAS is planning on hosting a public observing night to celebrate Astronomy Day, and we intend to set up several telescopes at Albert McGowan Park in upper Sahali.
As we're reliant on the weather to cooperate for observing, we'll be making the attempt to observe on one of these two nights... Friday April 19th or Saturday April 20th, after 7:30pm.
Check back here for updates and confirmation as the date gets closer and the weather report is nailed down. Let's hope for clear skies on one of those nights so we can all have a look at Saturn and Jupiter!
Unfortunately the weather hasn't been very cooperative to try to catch a glimpse of Comet PanSTARRS, but it will be located due West in the twilight just after the sun sets. You'll need a low Western horizon and binoculars to catch this elusive comet.
