Status updated by our Observatory Director on 9/14/2015 at 6:05 AM:

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!

Observatory opens at 7:30pm with Saturn in the eyepiece.

    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.
