Darling Hill Will Be OPEN For Public Viewing Tonight, 8:30 p.m. (Friday, June 3)


Posted by sasadmin, June 3rd, 2011

Greetings fellow astrophiles!

We’re not even waiting until 5:00 p.m. to announce this one. Tonight looks fantastic for observing, so Darling Hill will be opening. There are no “reasonable” ISS fly-overs tonight (3 a.m. and beyond), but two Iridium Flares are predicted for tonight (shown below, from heavens-above.com).
