As our member David posted on Facebook yesterday:

We hope you got up early to see the planet alignment. This iPhone shot is from up on Mt. Wilson on 6/23, showing an over-exposed Moon, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn; followed by the dome for the 60-inch telescope.

While we only really have the Moon to view (and perhaps a few double stars or bright "deep sky" objects), we will be on the sidewalk at Myrtle & Lime this Saturday, starting about 8 pm. We hope to see you there!

Be like Dave,and come see the moon from the sidewalk, with the Old Town Sidewalk Astronomers.

And here is the July What's Up video from NASA - still going strong since April 2007!
