Public Observing Event
at the ACA Observatory

 

Impromptu Event!

The star party will feature Jupiter and the nearly
First Quarter Moon.  Clear skies and low humidity with temperature around 40F are forecasted. Please dress for 15F cooler than predicted nighttime low temperature.  It's not often the ACA has a Lunar Program; so this is an opportunity to see the Moon close up with the 16" observatory telescope.  We'll have the best free coffee in Akron brewing during the observing session.

Jet Stream

    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.
