Hello gang! Let's plan our CloudyNights EAA Gathering for August! It's Australia's turn!
As you recall, we rotate for "ideal viewing conditions" from 1) Western Europe, to 2) North America Pacific Time Zone, then to 3) North America Eastern Time Zone, and now to 4) Australia, so that within 4 months, everybody gets ideal times and, hopefully, conditions.
So Australia, let's go with August 7th (new Moon) from 8pm to 10pm. Because it's winter for you now, you'll have full darkness by then. To see this for your time zone, regardless of where you are in the world, check out:
(Kym, before we go any farther, will this work for you?)
Edge of our seats, Australia. : )
