Greetings fellow astrophile!
New Moon and Clear Skies. This rare combination is not to be ignored! The Clear Sky Clock indicates clear skies well past midnight and all forecasts say overcast skies and/or rain for the Friday Public Viewing Session, so several members will be opening the observatory and taking advantage tonight. Saturn will likely be the focus of several scopes tonight, but the last viewing session proved to be eventful for both shooting stars and galaxies.
It will be quite cool tonight, so do bring another layer just in case. Darling Hill will be open by 8.
