We had a fabulous night of observing under nearly ideal sky conditions.
The best night, so far, this entire year.

This observing event was most definitely a success!

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.
