Star Night, Fanshawe Conservation Area, July 5th, 2015

Partly cloudy hazy skies greeted some 20 visitors for a Star Night near the boat launch area in Fanshawe Conservation Area on Sunday, July 5th, 2015, around 9:00 p.m.  RASC London Centre members with telescopes included Rick Saunders, 80mm Stellarvue refractor; Harold Tutt, 80mm Stellarvue Nighthawk refractor; Rob McNeil, Williams Optics 72mm refractor; and Norman McCall, Explore Scientific 152mm Maksutov-Newtonian Comet Hunter.  They observed Venus and Jupiter and by 10:30 p.m. it was obvious that nothing more could be seen in the hazy sky.
