The Staunton River Star Party registration is now open!  It’s only two hours from Richmond and the best new star party in the east.  Check it out at this link.

Star in the east – Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) is rising in the southeast after sunset and gradually moving north  More information in the RAS Updates.

  1. Hello,
    I planned a meetup (about 27 people scheduled to join us) to come out and view tonight’s transit. I know the event is atmospheric condition pending.
    Where and by when can I get a notification that the event has been cancelled or will continued as planned?

    You are more than welcome to post directly on our meetup wall for the event, or to contact me directly.

    Thanks very much for making astronomy so appealing to the masses ! :)
