Impromptu Event! 

The weather for Tuesday 9/20 looks good for an impromptu
star party. Let's tentatively schedule a star party from 7:30 PM
to 9:45pm. This time of year is good for observing globular
clusters, Messier objects in the constellation Sagittarius, and
a few remarkable open clusters like the Wild Duck & Herschel's Double Cluster.
