We’ll hold our monthly meeting on Friday, August 3, at 7:45PM, in room 215 of Davis Hall, the Aerospace Engineering Building.  Riders from the Montgomery area are welcome to meet at the home of Russell Whigham, 518 Seminole Dr., and carpool over to Auburn.  Plan to be ready to leave for Auburn at 6:45PM. 

We’ll resume our dark-sky star parties this fall when the overnight temperatures return to a bearable level. 

We’ll have a better than average ISS Pass on Monday Aug. 6, moving SW to NE, rising at 8:52PM, overhead at 8:54, and setting at 8:56.
