Cancelled – C.M. Crockett Public Night and Messier Marathon @ C.M. Crockett Park
Mar 12 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm

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 month and many days before and after.

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

All of the weather forecasts agree that Saturday evening will be cloudy.  They disagree only on how early rain will begin.  Not suitable conditions for observing the night sky so tomorrow’s public night is canceled.

Clear skies for the future,
