    Hi All, I apologize for the confusion with last night's event cancellation and for the fact that cancellation was only announced on AAA.org and not here. Going forward, our Meetup's event cancellations will be posted on the NYC Physics and Astronomy Meetup webpage.

    Thanks,
    Leo Genn

    Hi i I can't find the location
    I'm in the park now...I missed the evening . Can't see in the dark. Perhaps we should meet outside the museum or park before.

    Hmm. This website: http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/hdfForecast?query=10011....
    now says that although there is 100% chance of rain during the day on Friday, on Friday night, the chance of precipitation is only thirty percent. Tomorrow Night
    37 °F
    Chance of Rain
    30% chance of precipitation

    Lets hope for clear skies for our final party and observing session of 2012. I hope to see you there at this great venue with great people. If the weather is questionable, please check AAA.org before the event to check for possible weather related cancellation.

      Hi Z.J.,

      Sorry you won't be able to make it. If you would be comfortable, I believe our meetup members would love to hear more about your town's celebration of the Winter Solstice. Please join us for observing in the spring and for our Friday lecture series.

      Thanks,
