Status updated by our Observatory Director on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 7:52 PM

NOAA has changed its weather forecast at 7:05pm for NE Ohio to mostly cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers & thunderstorms. If there was
a break in the clouds, poor seeing conditions caused by the turbulent atmosphere combined with the low position of Jupiter above the horizon would produce a poor image of the planet. Considering all this,
our star party for this evening is
Jupiter will be getting higher in the sky every night at sunset, so we're
almost guaranteed to have plenty of viewing opportunities this summer.
Thank you for your patience.
