Our next Open House will be Friday, Dec 13.
We'll be open from 7:30 - 9:30 PM.
We'll look at the gibbous Moon, Jupiter, and
the Orion Nebula, and maybe even see a few
of the Geminid meteors.
It will be cold, so remember to dress warmly!
Check this webpage for updates on the status of the Open House. We'll update it during the afternoon of Friday, Dec 13, based on the latest weather forecasts. If the skies are cloudy, we won't be able to look through the telescopes -- so, in that case, we'll give a presentation on the Chinese lunar mission Chang'e 3. It will be landing on the Moon just a few hours after our Open House!
There's another supernova for small telescopes! SN 2013ej in the nearby face-on spiral galaxy M74 was discovered on July 25 by the automated supernova search at Lick Observatory. We've been following it at the RIT Observatory since July 27.
