The forecast calls for the clouds to hang around for earlier evening,
then clearing; but, too far beyond our star party start time.
As a result, our star party for tonight is

Public Observing Event

at the ACA Observatory


Impromptu Event -
Mars, Saturn & deep sky objects

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

What will we be looking at tonight?

The forecast for Wednesday evening is clear skies. We plan to have a star party from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Mars & Saturn are well-placed for observing with Mars showing a little more detail as dust from storms continues to settle. Many
globular clusters and planetary nebulae are on the observing list.
