The clear skies promised for tonight have not come.
Heavy cloud cover in parts of the sky and a thick overall haze
over the rest, coupled with the full Moon tonight are the
worst possible conditions for trying to see anything.
For these reasons, tonight's event has been CANCELLED.

We'll try again next Friday September 4, 2015.

The detail provided on this page will let you know what's up in the sky tonight

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.
