Status updated by our Observatory Director on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 2:32 PM

Observatory will open at 6:45 PM

The forecast for this evening is mostly clear skies early. We are going to open the observatory a little early to view Saturn, then we'll continue with the rest of the observing list. The extended forecast calls for cloudy skies for our scheduled star party on Saturday, so this may be our last chance to see Saturn this year.

Observatory will open at 6:45 PM
