We had a fun time at our October 7-8 workshops and observation session at the Moncton High School. On October 7th, we held our telescope clinic, where one of our members instructed a family on how to setup and use their Christmas gift telescope. During the same evening, we observed the Moon as part of the International Observe the Moon Night. We also observed Saturn, Mars, and other deep sky objects.
On October 8th, we had our first meeting where we gave beginner-level talks on astronomy: observing with the naked eye, observing the solar system, and observing with binoculars. One of our members also helped a beginner on how to setup their telescope. Seven new members joined our growing club on that day.
