Status updated: Friday September 4, 2015 5:30 PM (EDT)

The sky has decided to at least partially clear, but
our event has to be
CANCELLED regardless.
The field is wet from last night's rain and thunderstorms are
predicted for tonight.  The last thing any of us want to be doing
is standing in the middle of a damp large open field,
surrounded by well-grounded tall metal telescopes
when lightning is likely to occur.

We'll try again next Friday 9/11/2015.

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.
