The public events for Crockett and Great Meadow are cancelled due to bad weather projected for this evening! Sorry and see you all next month.
Unfortunately tonight's public night is canceled, the third cancelled Crockett Public Night in a row. The astronomy forecast predicts 70 percent or more cloud cover and the local forecast is cloudy with a 20% chance of showers or drizzle. Not acceptable conditions; nobody wants precipitation on lenses, mirrors or electronics. Hoping for clear skies next [...]
Snow and clouds are in the forecast so the Great Meadow Public Observing Night scheduled for tonight (3-5-2016) is cancelled due to bad weather. Sincerely, Lyle Mars Great Meadow Site Coordinator
Here is a link to the resource page that NOVAC has been recording info on over the years. This years event is scheduled for March 12 2016 at Crockett Park. Check the calendar and the front page for any updates to the event. http://www.novac.com/wp/observing/messier-marathon/
The weather forecasts indicate mostly cloudy sky conditions until after 23:00 local. To not disappoint the public or annoy volunteers, tonight's public night is cancelled. Hope for clear skies in the coming months. ~ Tree Greenwood

With the cancellation of Star Gaze this past weekend we have added an additional Public Night for this coming Sunday evening 6:30pm to 11:00pm at Crockett Park. Special thanks goes out to the club members that are making this happen!
The forecast for this weekend's Star Gaze event poses serious risks to the safety of our volunteers as well as members of the general public who might wish to attend the event. Consequently, we have decided to cancel Star Gaze for 2015. NOVAC has several other observing-only public nights scheduled during the rest of 2015, [...]
