Status updated by our Observatory Director on Tuesday 5/3/2016 at 5:28 pm:

The forecast changed and mostly cloudy skies are predicted for this evening.
Our impromptu star parties are selected based on premium observing conditions.
We don't have those conditions this evening; however, there is another chance for Friday evening, 5/6/2016. So let's try then!

Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event! 

Mostly clear skies are forecasted for Tuesday evening so we'll plan an observing session to view Jupiter and other celestial objects. The Great Red Spot is well placed for viewing at star party time. Globular cluster M3, Beehive Cluster, and
galaxies of the Virgo Cluster are on our observing list.


The forecast calls for Clear Skies!
