Opened observatory at 8:30 pm with ten people in attendance. Gave a talk about star
formations and reasons for star color. This was used to stall for darker skies

At this time it wasn’t dark enough to see any of the moons of Saturn.
Took a look at Mars with a few more in attendance (about 25).
Then on to m13 the globular cluster and m26 open cluster.
