June Special Meeting

*** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***
Hi All:

The postponed June meeting of the Kingston Centre will be held tomorrow Thursday June  27th  from 7-9PM in Room D214 of Mac-Corry Hall, Queen's University.
This month's meeting will include:  Several of us will have reports from the RASC General Assembly and AAVSO meeting the weekend before last – lots of excitement there and some important information to share with the membership (not just dry business reports!)  We'll be showing results from the ISS transit across the disk of the Sun which went across the local area on Sunday.  Kevin Kell's going to try to inject some more fun into the meeting with a hand's on exercise on the scale of the solar system.  And of course we'll end with an exciting collection of observing reports from members.
