Last night was exceptionally clear at our place, with minimum sky glow. I didn't check the humidity, but it must have been fairly low as there was very little haze. Jupiter was big and bright, and the Milky Way stood out well from Sagittarius up through Cygnus. I just checked the National Weather Service and it appears that tomorrow night will be great for observing, if a little hot. I thinkl it will be a fine night for stargazing at Coleman. Hope y'all can make it! Big Grin

I hope everyone can make it up tonight, too.
It WILL BE A SCORCHER, so whatever you can bring to keep cool, I'm sure you'll be glad you brought it.

B U M M E R, DUDE!

It looked like the clouds might just roll on out of the area for a little while around 9:30 or 10:00, but it actually clouded up and even started to rain for a little while just before midnight. Almost everyone had just started packing up about the same time the first drops started falling so it was a good time to head in anyway.

All we can do is hope for a better night NEXT Saturday night. That's our next scheduled observing event and don't forget that our first scheduled club meeting since May will be held at UA Fort Smith in the Math/Science bldg in room 211 at 7:00pm on Friday, August 1st. It would be nice to see a lot of members turn out for this meeting since we've had a two month break due to the June star party and the July holiday. Everyone try to come and visit with us at the Meeting next Friday night, and come observe with us Saturday night Aug 2nd.


Looking forward to seeing a big crowd.......
Bob

Hey all,

I just wanted to let you that we had a great time regardless; it could’ve been a lot worse…

Dave and Leonard, it was really nice to finally meet you two and I’m looking forward to seeing you again.

Unfortunately, I'll be unable to attend the meeting on Aug. 1st. The family and I will be in Branson for the weekend.

Clear skies,
Larry
