Observatory Night for Friday 12-May-2017 Cancelled due to weather

For folks who have registered for the event tonight: Cloudy skies and rain are predicted for this evening and it's extremely unlikely conditions will be acceptable for observing. I'm going to make an early no-go call and cancel the event for tonight.

Sincere apologies for not being able to hold the event.

Summer 2017 dates are now available. The event schedule can be found here.

As always, thank you so much for your interest in astronomy and our observatory!
