    Yesterday, I postponed until tomorrow today's Member night at Curby.  Unfortunately, it appears, according to all of my weather and clear sky sources that although it looks to be mostly sunny much of the day tomorrow, the clouds will roll in in earnest right about the time the sky gets dark enough to do any observing.  As that will be around 9:00-9:30 PM, and on a Sunday, I suspect most members won't want to risk it.  As such, member night for tomorrow night is cancelled.  As always, if you feel the need to take the risk, you are welcome to go to the site as long as you understand that the ground has yet to dry out from all the rain we've had these past few weeks, and so the observing field is soggy.  So please upload your equipment onto the field with your vehicle sitting on the gravel drive, and then park it on the gravel parking area in front of the multipurpose building.

    Looking at the weather forecast for tomorrow evening for Curby, and it doesn't look good. Calling for rain tomorrow with mostly cloudy tomorrow night. As such, I am calling a no go for member night Saturday at Curby. Having said that, there may be a chance for members to observe on Sunday evening if you folks want to journey there. I will call a go, no go for Sunday on Saturday evening.  Stay tuned to this bat channel.

    The forecast for Saturday is getting worse so I am cancelling the Public Observation night at the UAC Saturday February 24.

    I have canceled the Sky Watch and Star Stories for Saturday at Bernheim Forest on 2/172018

  • Fri, February 16, 2018 3:01 PM | Ron Yates

    We have had a lot of rain in the past two weeks,  and the NWS forecast is for rain through Saturday night.  What with the weather conditions and the saturated condition of the observing field, I don't see any improvement that would allow this event to go forward.  As such, member night at Curb for February 17, 2018 is cancelled.

    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.
