Chuck Jagow set up at a construction site south of Red Mill Elementary School, while Jeff Goldstein, Mel Spruill, and George Reynolds set up telescopes at the edge of the Red Mill Farms Park parking lot, along Sandbridge Road.  We had a good view of the planets from twilight, shortly after 5 pm,  through about 6:30 pm, when they were low on the horizon and we were looking through a lot more atmosphere. It was a spur-of-the-moment impromptu event, and we had a few folks come by and looked through our telescopes.
