Cancelling the public night for C. M Crockett Park scheduled for tonight.
This is a tough call. Weather forecasts don’t agree as of 08:00. The Clear Sky Chart forecast says skies will clear to 20% coverage at 17:00 and then clear completely by 19:00. Forecasts by WeatherUnderground, Weather_Channel and Weather.com show clearing later with the possibility of a late shower. Local TV weather forecasts vary, too. Of most concern is forecasts of 5% to 30% possibility of precipitation until as late as 22:00. I don’t want to risk members of the public driving to the park only to find all of the telescopes packed up to leave.
Hoping for clear skies for Astronomy Day,
Crockett Park Site Coordinator
