The Cape Fear Astronomical Society will be having a Public Observing Session on Saturday, July 1, 2017 Starting at 8:45pm and continuing until 10pm. This observing session will be held in the visitor's center parking lot of the Carolina Beach State Park. The Moon and Jupiter will be the primary object for this observing session.

If the sky is not clear on Saturday, July 1, 2017 this viewing session will not be rescheduled.

Please take note: For safety and consideration to others, we ask that you refrain from using flash photography. This includes cell phones. There are two reasons for this.

  1. Once a person's eyes are accustomed to the dark it takes several minutes for them to acclimate again. Eyes acclimated to the dark can see greater detail through our telescopes.
  2. A flash if seen directly through the eyepiece of a telescope could be blinding. While this blindness most likely will not be permanent, it is still quite painful.
If you don't know how to turn off your flash, we will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for your cooperation.

The next meeting will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday, July 9, 2017.

The program for after the business meeting is yet to be determined.

The “gAstronomy Society” meeting for this month will be at the Kabuki Korean Cafe restaurant located at 4102 Oleander Dr.

Please join us at 5:00 pm for supper and astronomical conversation.
