Public Observing Event

Impromptu Event!

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

Clouds are finally moving out giving us an opportunity for a star party Monday evening starting at 7:00pm. Uranus is well-placed for evening observing. Herschel's Double Cluster, the Andromeda Galaxy, Herschel's Garnet Star,
the Blue Snowball Nebula, the ET Cluster, and the Blue Flash Nebula
will also be on our observing list.

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