Special Event at the ACA Observatory
General Observing

The weather conditions are not suitable for our planned  Messier Marathon tonight; however there is an area of usable sky over Indiana that should arrive at the observatory at star party time. So, the observatory will be open at 8pm with the best free coffee in Akron serving at 8:05pm. If you don't want to drag your telescope out, that's okay, just come out for some coffee and views through the observatory telescope.

    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
