August Monthly Showcase winner

19 09 2019

Hi everyone,

Congratulations to Kym Haines who won the August monthly showcase with a beautiful image of the Trifid Nebula. Excellent entries were also received from Jean-Luc Gaubicher, with a smartphone shot of the Moon and Saturn side by side, and from John Sandoval with a star trails video.

The September Monthly Showcase is still open; please send your entries to me at bpetschel@gmail.com. Remember, the entries can be anything astronomy-related and more than 10km up.

Cheers,
Ben

Guys,

As mentioned in last Tuesday meeting, if you want to support the Australasian Dark Sky Alliance, got to their website https://www.australasiandarkskyalliance.org/.

Also, for those culturally inclined, if you were interested in a theatre production about the women who trained for the American space program (i.e. the Mercury 13), you can find out more at https://www.bonditheatrecompany.com.au/shows/the-stars-at-noon.
