Status updated by our Observatory Director on Saturday 4/9/2016 at 5:44 PM:

Our star party for this evening has been CANCELLED
due to clouds, wind, and cold temperatures.
The extended forecast calls for clear skies and warmer temperature Wednesday night so we tentatively plan to have an impromptu star party.
The Website will be updated when plans are finalized.
