You may have realized by now, that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Laurentian University students are not currently in their classrooms. At this time, Sudbury RASC members will not be in the Doran Planetarium either. Centre President Alan Ward has put together an interesting meeting agenda for all would-be attendees to experience on that date!
The August Meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) Sudbury Centre will be held at 7:00PM Friday July 5th, online via Zoom.
The details of this safe, virus free, meeting experience, including feature speakers will be revealed in the Sudbury RASC Centre Newsletter set to appear on during the first week of August.
Note: To anyone who isn’t already subscribed to our newsletter and would like to receive it, please use our contact form on our website (www.sudburyastronomyclub.com) with the subject ‘Newsletter Subscription’ and we will add you to the list. You will receive your invitation to the meeting via email. Remember, even if we are in isolation does not mean we still can’t share the wonders of the universe together.
