Cancelled - C.M. Crockett Public Night @ C.M. Crockett Park | Midland | Virginia | United States

All of the weather forecasts agree that cloud cover will increase after 15:00 to ‘mostly cloudy’ (or worse).  Transparency “too cloudy to forecast” and seeing poor to impossible won’t allow us to show the public wonders of the night sky.

 Hoping for better conditions in 2019,

Although the Clear Sky Chart shows only 20 to 40% cloud cover[1], the ClearOutside site predicts over 80% of the sky obscured by clouds.[2] WeatherUnderground says 39 to 70%[3] and AccuWeather says ~90% cloud cover.[4]  Other paid weather-guessers predict partly or mostly cloudy and most give a five to fifteen percent chance of measurable precipitation.  Not conditions suitable for star gazing.

Clear skies, dang it!  Please?
