It's a gorgeous night and we encourage you to get out and look up, but we
won't be having an event tonight since it's the 4th Friday of the month and
the people that set up equipment at Fishcreek have an Astronomy Club of Akron
meeting at the Franklin Park Civic Center "Tudor House".  You are invited and
more than welcome to attend.  Full details are available here.

    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.
