    I'm glad you got to talk with someone. Sorry about the late notice.
    Actually folks, the current forecast for next Saturday isn't much better than it was last night. Maybe worse.
    Keep an eye on the skies.

    It was a good first meeting for us. We had the opportunity to meet another Mars member (Daniel). He did provide us with some insight on star gazing and telescope info. Looking forward to meeting up with him again this weekend and other members as well.

    I would love to bring my own scope, but we are such amateurs we're not sure which one/type to buy. Advise?

      Hey Dana, it was nice to meet you and your wife. Hope to see you at the Star Party.

    I didn't see anyone out there I recognized but I decided to stick it out anyway. The cloud cover was bad for the first hour or so but we had a few opportunities to show off Jupiter and M42. Around 8-8:30 the sky started to clear. Unfortunately, every one was leaving around this time and the MOSI guys packed up, so I left.

    Weather trumps all other plans.
    The event for this evening is cancelled.
    On the off chance that the skies do clear up, MOSI staff may still bring out their equipment.

    I'm wondering if there will still be a star event tonight if it's raining? Thank you

    They are the same thing. Sunset isn't until 6:25 so we put 7 as a start time. Hope to see you there.

    MOSI's website says this starts at 6 pm but this says 7pm. Are they the same thing or ?

    You do not need to bring a telescope to SkyWatch. MOSI will have their scopes out for public use, and some club members usually have some of their scopes setup. If you do bring a scope, there is room to set it up and if you need help learning to use it, club members will be there to spend time with you.

      I usually just go right to NASA/JPL for the latest on findings. I'm not certain that Dr. Sobel has a site.
