A nasty wintery mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and/or snow tomorrow afternoon and evening isn’t suitable for telescopes, astronomers or the general public.
Hoping for Clear skies for future dates,

Please read the C.M. Crockett Page for park details.
I’m cancelling public night. Great Meadow fields are soft already. The melting snow will make it worse.
When using the dirt roads to access our site, remember to try not veer off, causing damage and widening of the roads. We are grateful to be guests at Great Meadow so please don’t damage the facilities.
I would suggest using the VRE garage again for the collimation workshop. We should be able to do star tests from the top level with non-artificial stars!

The astronomy calendar is an effort of love and no reciprocity is needed or expected, but if you’d like to say thank you for his efforts, then please visit:
