tAstronomical Observing at Fishcreek
Friday 6/27/2014
this page last updated: 6/27/2014 at 8:56 AM

All indications are that we'll have perfect weather for tonight's event.

Updates will be posted here should conditions unexpectedly change.


Update: The observing field conditions are not ideal...there is standing water near the pavement on the EAST SIDE, but the WEST SIDE is clear.  Therefore, if you need to drive out on the grass to drop off equipment, please go to the RIGHT FAR CORNER of the pavement to pull out on the field and leave via the same corner.  We've had so much rain, these conditions are to be expected.
Click here for a graphic of the parking lot showing the corner to use.

    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.
