Lunar image captured at the Powhatan State Park skywatch on January 16.

The next meeting of the Richmond Astronomical Society will be on Tuesday, February 9, 7:30 PM at the Science Museum of Virginia.  

The image to the left was captured at our recent Powhatan State Park skywatch.  Although clouds impeded our view somewhat, we were able to show our visitors some spectacular views of the Moon.  The image shows the Lunar X light/shadow pattern and the crater Albategnius.
