RAS and Francis Emma Inc. will host a skywatch and a talk at Belmead on the James in Powhatan.  Astronomers and visitors are welcome to set up their telescopes in the paved area near the mansion and observe as long as they like, but no telescope is required, just an interest in the night sky.  The entrance to Belmead is located at 5004 Cartersville Road, Powhatan, VA. A Google Map showing the location is at this link: https://goo.gl/maps/IInF3. Once you enter Belmead follow signs to the mansion.  Belmead is a beautiful dark sky location.  Note that the start time was previous advertised as 7:00 PM.  The correct time is 6:30.
