The clouds (and, perhaps, rain) make observing tonight impossible (9/23). Tomorrow (Saturday, 9/24) looks a lot better. Check back here after 5pm on Saturday to be sure we’ll be out there, but it is forecasted to be a crisp, clear night.
Below is the observing schedule for the Fall 2016 term. Remember that observing can only happen if it’s clear, so make sure to check back here (or on Twitter: @StickneyObs) on the evening of observing. The nights for the Spring are:
- Thursday, October 6 at 7:30pm
- Thursday, October 20 at 7:00pm
- Thursday, November 3 at 7:00pm
- Thursday, November 10 at 7:00pm
- Thursday, December 1 at 7:00pm
We do not have any planned observing nights over the summer. Check this space in early September for observing dates for the Fall term.
It looks like it’s going to be hazy tonight, so observing night has been cancelled.
This was going to be the last observing night of the term – so thank you to everyone who came out to all the other nights! Be sure to check back in September for next term’s schedule!
