Battis Farm Night 1 for Trails and Sails weekend 2015

Clear skies, a warm night, and a subdued mosquito population made for an excellent star party.  A rough head count put the number of attendees around the 100 mark. NSAAC members Bryan Stone, Kevin Hocker, David Aucoin, Jon Brucker, and Brewster LaMacchia were joined by (hopefully soon to be club members) Paul Ouellette, Tom Manion, and Rebecca Nelson to offer views of the the moon, Saturn, Perseus double cluster, M57, Albiero, Andromeda, and many more objects. We also saw an assortment of satellites and meteors.
