No sense waiting for 5:00 PM to state the obvious...

caused our event scheduled for tonight to be
CANCELLED yet again.

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.
