    The weather Friday night looks bad with ice and 2-4" of snow.  The LAS will not be at the Planetarium.  We will run a telescope workshop soon, possibly at the February meeting.

    Stay warm and dry!

    This month has been terrible for our events.  I promised to give a go, no go for public night at Curby. As most of you likely already know, the forecast calls for rain and high winds tonight through tomorrow night. In looking at every forecast I could find, I couldn't get around these facts. It is simply not looking good at all. We will have boy scouts out there this evening and tomorrow, and although they are aware of the forecast, they did not want to cancel. So I will be there with Larry and Sue Louka. But I don't think the weather is going to be conducive to either imaging to observing either tonight or tomorrow night (except for sometime well after midnight Saturday/Sunday). So I am calling a no go on member night. As always, members in good standing can go to Curby anytime. So if you feel you want to risk it, you are, of course, welcome to go.

     Member night at the James G. Baker Center For Astronmy, At Curby, Indiana - scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2017 is cancelled due to forecast cloudy conditions.

  • Sat, October 07, 2017 7:00 AM | Frank Nelson

    Pubic night at the UAC is cancelled due to the wave of rain and clouds heading our way. 100% rain chance in the Louisville area after 5PM.

  • Fri, September 01, 2017 9:12 PM | Ron Yates

     As of right now, all indications are that we will have clear skies for Public Night at our dark sky site, at Curby, Indiana.  At any rate, it has been advertised locally,  so we will be in business tomorrow night starting at 8 P.M.

  • Sat, July 22, 2017 12:27 PM | Ron Yates

    Conditions aren't ideal, and it will be muggy tonight.  But they are good enough to do some observing.  So July 22 member night at Curby is a go.

    The weather forecast for tonight's public night at Curby looks iffy. Could be some rain early with high clouds in the evening.  I don't want to call it off as someone invariably shows up regardless.  I will be there in case people show up.  If nothing else, we can watch "The Martian" on the big screen.  Given our luck with the weather lately, who knows?  We might get lucky.  lol
