Join club members for the first lecture of the academic year, the traditional "Members' Night". Your fellow astronomy enthusiasts will relate some of the exciting events, observations, equipment and experiences they've had in the past year.
WAA members will be viewing the Perseid Meteor Shower at its peak on the night of Wednesday, August 12th into Thursday morning. The moon will not be interfering with this year's shower. The maximum event rate, often between 60-100 meteors per hour, usually occurs after midnight.
