Observatory Night for Friday 24 March 2017 Cancelled due to clouds

I apologize for the late notice. I've been obsessively watching the sky and the satellite. At this moment there are large portions of sky visible, but clouds are rolling in from the west. I think by 9 PM we will be overcast.

On nights when it's partly cloudy I can often show bright objects, but tonight we are without Moon or planets. The objects on the agenda this evening were deep sky objects, which will not be visible through clouds or haze.

I sincerely apologize that I couldn't offer an observatory night this evening. My feeling is that it's better to cancel than to have folks make the trip and then not be able to see anything. Additional nights will be scheduled over the next few months.
