Questionable weather conditions remain and there's no sign
of it improving before we'd be shutting down for the night.
For these reasons, the event tonight has been CANCELLED

We'll try again next Friday night.

Jet Stream (updates automatically to latest available image)
    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
