Newly Modified Web site And SuperNova

This message was sent to current RASC-SudburyCentre members, as well as past guests of the Sudbury Astronomy Club to announce that our newly modified website is up and running!

Also, RASC has sent a note regarding the SuperNova Early Warning System or SNEWS. You can click on this link and find out how to register in order to receive notifications if Neutrino activity is detected at facilities like SNOLAB. This will give amateur astronomers a chance to witness supernovas early in their existence.
