Public Viewing Session (9 April) & Occultation of Aldebaran (10 April)

Last night we had a clear sky although not quite as “transparent” as we would have liked. Several of our members showed up with their own telescopes and 34 people of all ages showed up to view the skies. Jupiter was showing its Great Red Spot and at one point we watched the International Space Station cruise over with the Dragon spacecraft following it. Today some are returning this afternoon to catch the occultation of Aldebaran by the Moon between 2:48 and 3:28 PM on 10 April. They’ll have the solar scopes out for viewing the Sun as well.
