Friday night’s observing session showed an awesome shadow transit of Ganymede across Jupiter. For a moment, as Ganymede
resolved into a disc and cast its shadow on Jupiter, the gas giant looked like it had acquired both a pimple and a zit.
Saturday’s presentations in the longhouse centred on the growth of dark sky preserves in Canada by Mark Coady,
the men throughout history who have affect astronomy the most by Doug Angle, and a report on the RASC general assembly
by Kevin Kell. All of this was followed by the legendary banquet and door prize draws.
