July 4th - Great Falls Observatory Park

  • Jul 4, 2008 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

GPS: N[masked] W[masked] It's forecast to be overcast - sigh yet again - but I'll be there to watch the fireworks. Hopefully I can meet some of you. As I understand it, there will be fireworks!! Meeting starts at dusk. No observing if overcast but there will still be fireworks. Please bring your telescope if you have one, and if you don't, no worries - I'm sure people will only be too happy to showoff their toys. This is probably the best observing site within an easy drive from DC.

    I had a chance to chat with some people from the Analemma Society and the Fairfax County Park Authority while waiting for the fireworks. There was no stargazing as it was overcast but the fireworks display was well attended.

    Weather continues to be a challenge when trying to observe the sky.

    Hi All,
    Sorry to have missed this event. I lost my keys at Tyson's and had my own fireworks and indepedence getting back into my little home. Hope you had fun, in spite of weather. If all goes well I'll see you next week.

    I'm checking if BBQs are OK at the park (probably).
