Log, Jul 10, 2009
Almost six dozen people came into the Observatory, some from the Big Apple Circus, which was also in the Park. They were shown Saturn, which, every week slides lower and lower into the western horizon; soon, it will be lost in the glare of the Sun. While we were in that area, we moved to the globular cluster in the Hunting Dogs, M3, then over to M27, the Dumbbell Nebula in Vulpecula, the Fox, finally ending the evening with the Wild Duck Cluster, M11. The Moon and Jupiter both rose as we were closing for the night, but Jupiter will soon be a part of our late evening observing time.
