Impromptu Event

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

There were lots of clear nights with the Moon out recently; however, now
lots of clouds. There might be a chance of clear skies Friday evening.
The forecasts vary from partly cloudy to mostly clear. We tentatively plan
a star party Friday evening from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Saturn is still well
placed for viewing. The constellation Sagittarius contains many Messier
objects including Swan Nebula, open cluster M23, Butterfly Cluster,
and globular cluster M22 that we'll observe.
We'll also be viewing Blinking Nebula, Stick Dog, and more...

The observatory will open at 7:00 PM for stargazing
