On or Not?


Astronomical observations are subject to weather.If it is cloudy there is usually no point in trying to see anything in the sky.On days when an observation session is scheduled at the observatory, this page will contain information on weather (sic) or not we are going.The final call will usually be made sometime in the afternoon of the observation sessionís day, so check back here then.

Weather forecasts can be obtained, for example, from the National Weather Service.


Open House scheduled for Friday, May 9, 2014 at 9:00pm. Sadly, it is now (Thursday) pretty certain that a sunny Friday will become cloudy before dark, with not enough space between the clouds for us to see anything (about 80% cloud cover forecast by 9pm). Our last Open House of the season is sadly cancelled.
