Looks like we'll have excellent observing conditions tonight. Very good seeing and transparency are predicted. We'll need it as we go after the faintest object in the Messier catalog: Cork Nebula.  Remember to dress for 15°cooler than nighttime predicted low. A great night of observing is ahead!

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