Observatory night status for Friday 7 April 2017

It's another frustrating evening in Rockville. It's completely overcast now, and the forecast is calling for clouds. I'm going to stay at the observatory tonight in the hopes that we get a hole big enough to peek at the Moon. That being said, I don't think tonight will be good for observing. If there are clouds we can't see anything through the telescopes. Also, there is a hypothermia alert on, so it is very cold on the roof. If you live nearby and want to come to MC, I will be here, but the doors to the Science Center will lock after 9:30 PM.

I am working on scheduling additional dates for the summer. The weather has been extremely disappointing thus far!
