Once again, the observing event scheduled for tonight has been CANCELLED due to weather conditions and condition of the observing field.  Predicted low temperatures in the mid 20 F are expected which is far too cold.  The school has now blocked access to the field to prevent damage.

There are no more scheduled events for 2014.
Sometime by mid January, the 2015 schedule will be posted

This is where this observing event would have taken place if conditions would have allowed:

Fishcreek Elementary School

    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.
