Announced by our Observatory Director on Saturday, March 10 at 7:28 AM

Status updated on 3/10/2018 at 4:46 PM: Observatory will open at 7:00 PM tonight as planned

Radar shows clouds dissipating slowly and three forecasts call for clear skies by 7pm. So, observatory opens at 7:00pm. One of the beautiful winter clusters
we'll be looking at tonight is M37 in Auriga. M37 is well-placed near zenith.

Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event!

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

Since clear skies are orecasted for tonight, it is a great opportunity to see
the Great Orion Nebula! This is a gem viewed through the observatory
telescope and we only have a short window at the end of winter to see
this Messier object; other beautiful star clusters on observing list.
Time is 7:00pm to 8:30pm due to temperature.
Final call on star party by 5:30pm.

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