Status update from our Observatory Director on 6/23/2015 at 1:40pm:

The skies are clear!  Let's get together for an impromtu event.


Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory

 

Impromptu Event!

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



What will we be looking at tonight?

Jupiter and its four Galilean Moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) are well-placed as the ecliptic is still reasonably high. Exciting observing list will compliment Jupiter viewing including Venus, Saturn and the Moon.

We hope to see you here tonight.

    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.
