Upcoming Star Party Status

Surprisingly, the current hourly forecast shows a clearing this evening.

This evening's event is certaily on as scheduled, from 7 to 9pm.

The next star party is scheduled for Saturday, February 9th, at Lost Dutchman State Park from 7 to 9pm.
The weather outlook shows partly cloudy for that date. But, that's never stopped us before.  
Just be sure to check back later in the week or on Saturday afternoon for a possible cancellation.

And, as always, register in the Notification group to receive a cancellation email notice.

The current 10-day forecast can be found here:

As a reminder, this year we are planning to have several unscheduled events, such as Sun Parties (for solar observing) and a couple Moon Parties. Also, we will be adding a couple public star parties for sometime in the Mar-April-May timeframe.
