the City of Kingston will turn off some lights in front of City Hall on Ontario Street between 22:00 and 23:30. They have asked for our assistance to provide some telescope outreach. This will be much the same as KAON, set up a scope, let people take a look at Jupiter, Saturn, the Moon and talk to them.  We do have a few volunteers so far.. thank you!

Queens' University Biological Station Elbow Lake is hoping to hold a 'Night Under the Stars' as a public outreach event on Friday Aug 09.  I don't have many details but I'm thinking a couple of short talks, and several scopes to show the Moon (waxing gibbous) right next to Jupiter, M13 and a few other obvious targets.
Volunteers needed!
