Status update: Friday July 31, 2015 7:30 PM (EDT)

Tonight's observing event has been CANCELLED due to heavy cloud
cover approaching from the northwest which is highly likely
to totally block the now-perfectly clear overhead sky by the time
it's dark.  This is very frustrating, let me assure you.
Rain is also predicted by 11:00pm.

We'll try again next Friday 8/7/2015.

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.
