Carp Star Party – beautiful night

Last night was the RASC star party at the Diefenbunker, and it was a perfect night. I haven’t heard the official counts, but there were about 15 ‘scopes, and over a hundred visitors. At dusk, before fully dark, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars were all visible, and being shown in most of the scopes.  As dark came on most people switched to deep-sky objects. The sky was very clear, good transparency, and good seeing.  It was also, finally, pleasantly cool, temp around 10°. A great evening.  With luck, next weekend we might manage another sidewalk session too.
