Trip Summary:

We are gathering for a picnic to start the new season. The weather is getting better for a beach outing and we look forward to meeting our new and old members on this picnic. The beach offers splendid sunset views and we will also be greeted by a sixteen day old moon at night as well.

We will gather at our meeting location and then move onwards to the beach in a convoy.

A birding enthusiast by day, an astronomer by night and an engineer in between. Behind me are hundreds of pinhole projections of the eclipsed sun from Doha earlier in 2020. I'm proud to live with my 8 inch telescope, a bunch of cameras, a bicycle and three daughters!
