Rounding out the year

November and December will see two excellent speakers present talks, rounding out this most unusual year for the Cuyahoga Astronomical Association’s (CAA). COVID-19 isolation restrictions on group gatherings, and closed meeting facilities caused the club to take its meetings online via the Zoom cloud service. Normally the club hosts a December dinner in lieu of a meeting but since the dinner cannot be held, there will be a December “virtual” meeting complete with speaker.
