Cronyn Observatory Open House, October 13th, 2012

Clouds and rain greeted 10 visitors to the Cronyn Observatory Open House, Saturday, October 13th, 7:00 p.m. Graduate student Ted Rudyk gave his slide presentation, “Top 10 Reasons Why Jupiter is an Interesting Planet.” They then went upstairs where graduate student Neil Bhatt was in charge of the big 25.4cm refractor in the dome, which remained closed because of the rain. RASC London Centre member Peter Jedicke explained the history and operation of the big 25.4cm refractor. Peter reported that the visitors were very keen and asked many interesting questions, which Ted, Neil and Peter did their best to answer. Everybody left at 9:00 p.m.
