    The astronomers were very accessible & spoke in understandable English about what was visible in the telescopes. Lots of fun facts!

    Saw Laurie (Andromeda Jones) and Joe manning the scopes at 14th St. Right at the top of the stairs (could have tripped over them). Missed Little Habes who I heard got stuck in traffic. I have class on 6th Ave until 9 pm so I rarely get there before 9:30 pm but there were quite a few tourists & neighborhood types. AAA needs a sign to explain why they are there like Tom had at the Conservancy Lake for his Solar Observing. I explained many many times to curious & perplexed but interested people what was going on and why the group was there and yes .... please try the scopes. This is public outreach not a private group! :)

    "The latest Clear Sky Chart is dark blue up until 7:00 this evening. After that it's showing a little cloud cover, and then clearing again after midnight. Transparency is less than ideal, as it usually is. Accuweather is forecasting partly cloudy skies all evening.

    I'm a little hesitant to predict a good night of viewing, but I think there's a better than even chance that we'll get to see something.

    Sunset is at 7:37 tonight. Tom Haeberle will be there around 6:30 to catch the setting sun.

    Saturn will appear in the southwest around 8:00 and will disappear in the west around 9:45. Venus should be visible shortly after the sun sets, and will set around 8:45. No moon tonight.

    Not too many days remaining to catch Saturn. We'll be at our usual location at 14th Street.

    Joe"

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
