Everything went great for this observing event!

One couldn't ask for better weather, although perhaps a bit chilly.

We observed a 1-day past 1st Qtr Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars
as well as many favorite deep-sky objects.

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.
