Astronomy in the Park / Monthly Meeting / Mercury Transit

We have lots of stuff going on in the next week. As always, we have Astronomy in the Park at Brittlebank Park today. We set up at the south end of the park beginning around sunset. Weather permitting, we will be out there every Wednesday for the rest of 2019.

We will hold our next meeting on Thursday at 7pm, at Atlantic Aviation, 6060 S Aviation Ave, North Charleston, SC 29406. This may be a better representation of our meeting location.


Most importantly, there will be a rare transit of Mercury in front of the sun on Veteran's Day, Monday, November 11th.

Rescheduled September Meeting Cancelled October Meeting

Hope everyone came through our recent challenge OK.

 Since we got stormed out last week, we have rescheduled our September meeting to Friday, 13 Sep at 7PM at Atlantic Aviation , 6060 S. Aviation Ave., N. Charleston. This may be a better representation of our meeting location.

The plan is to discuss the planning outline for our Campus at Johns Island County Park and get moving on that effort. There will not be a formal presentation at this meeting, but we can certainly discuss any areas of interest or questions. We will also go over our schedule now that the summer season is drawing to a close.

 Since many of us will be in Columbia at our next scheduled meeting date, 3 Oct., we will not be holding a regular meeting that date, so the September meeting will be our last meeting until 7 November.

And don't forget! We will also have Astronomy in the Park at Brittlebank Park on Wednesday at sunset.
