This event was CANCELLED due to threat of thunderstorms
during the time we'd have telescopes set up.

These circumstances are potentially dangerous for the
equipment and, more importantly, for us participants.

We'll try again next Friday 9/12/2014

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.
