Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday January 17, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ojibway Park Nature Centre located at 5200 Matchette Road, Windsor, Ontario. Our January meeting is traditionally a movie night and our featured movie is the hour-long documentary “400 Years of the Telescope” (2009), narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson. The Director of Observing talk will be provided by Nancy Ng and of course we will have time to socialize during the coffee break.
