The event will be run live by Zoom - see below for how to join.

Paul will open the meeting, presenting from the comfort of his home observatory with a short talk about the plan for the evening.

This will be followed, by remote observing of the Stars, Planets, Moon and other objects viewed through Paul's 14-inch telescope with camera linked to the internet.

The dedicated Moonwatch session will be narrated by Brian with his encyclopaedic knowledge of the Moon, its formation, history and exploration.

We will be joined by other members of the CAA who have worked to bring their observatories on line as well, so that we can go over to them for different views.
