UB-SEDS has several exciting events coming up!
On Friday, July 1st, we have been invited to Camp Keenan on the shores of Lake Ontario to conduct an astronomy program. We will be bringing our club telescope as well as several members’ telescopes. Carpools are available, and several members are planning to stay the night. If you want to come up for just the night, that can be arranged too. There is no cost, but please RSVP to Salman Iqbal (Salman.Iqbal [AT] ubseds [DOT] org) if you’d like to attend. This event, of course, is weather permitting.
