Impromptu Event

It looks like a great evening for stargazing; cold temperatures, low humidity, and clear skies.

What will we be looking at tonight?
.

The forecast for Monday evening is for clear skies so let's plan
for an impromptu star party Monday evening starting at 9:00pm.
Come out to view globular clusters tonight. These star clusters contain
tens of thousands of stars in an area less than a 100 light-years across.
We’ll examine M5, M53, M13, M92, and M3 and discuss globular cluster classification


The observatory will open at 9:00pm this evening

Please dress appropriately for expected temperature conditions.

    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
