Sadly, the event scheduled for tonight, Friday 10/4/2013,
has been CANCELLED due to weather conditions.
All forecast sites are indicating heavy cloud cover, rain or
thunderstorms for tonight which prevents our event from occurring.

If you still have an astronomical need to be fulfilled,
let me recommend the free planetarium show tonight
at Kent State University. Click

    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.
