Status update: Friday August 14, 2015 6:52 PM (EDT)

Once again, as the day has progressed, the clear skies have turned cloudy. There's a large storm system moving in from the north-northwest which
will totally block our view of the skies by the time it gets dark.  Also,
rain is a distinct possibility.  Therefore, tonight's event has been
CANCELLED.

We'll try again next Friday August 21, 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.
