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, February 27, 2015 at 7:00pm. Tomorrow evening is forecast cloudy, but even if it were clear it seems likely roads will be hazardous. Stargazing, however gratifying, would probably not justify the risk of traveling. Open House is, yet again, cancelled. We hope to start 2015 observing in two weeks.

Our next Open House is scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2015 at 8:00pm.
