Hey all!

I sure hope the Cloud Gods are calm next weekend, cause I'm making the trek down to Coleman this Saturday...is anybody else planning on being there? Question I would love to meet you!

Hey Bob...I've programed the coordinates on my GPS...I'm driving down with my eyes closed!!! Eek!

Clear skies,
Larry

COME ON DOWN, LARRY!

This Saturday, June 28, as well as the next Saturday, July 5, are BOTH scheduled Public Observing nights here at Coleman Observatory. I hope that many of our club members will try to make at least one, but hopefully, a number of our members will make BOTH nights to help with explaining to visitors what is being seen through your telescope. My students are invited and there's always been between 10 to 20 people who will come up after seeing the night advertised in E Fort Smith magazine.

And BTW, if you have your imaging equipment transportable, bring it down and we'll shoot some pics through CETUS!!! (At least I hope its transportable)

I look forward to seeing you again, Larry. Let's hope for clear skies and moderate temperatures so that everyone has a pleasant time.

Take Care
Bob

Hey all,

I've been watching the weather all day and there is just too big of a chance of cloud cover for me to burn $35 in gas... Cry I'm gonna shoot for the end of July now.

Hello, Larry.

Yep, its been cloudy all evening. In case I haven't already mentioned my favorite saying, or one of them anyway, I always remind folks that, "Astronomy teaches PATIENCE". Whether they've bought new equipment or accessories and spoiled everything for EVERYONE, or whether the most anticipated astronomical event in decades occurs at the exact time of a days-long cloudy spell, it always seems to happen that way. There will always come another day and a next opportunity, though.

I hope we'll see you on July 26th or August 2nd, or maybe on the following scheduled dates of August 23rd and 30th. Hang in there.......

Bob
