Log, May 14, 1999

Friday: 47 people. This was a night of spectacular viewing. Visitors brought several very large telescopes including a 20" Obsession. Some of the spectacular sights included viewing of a supernova in a distant galaxy, the planet Pluto, the Whirlpool galaxy and many favorites. The air was very still and clear after weeks of rained out Fridays. One member was heard to say that this night made up for weeks of rain outs, but he was disabused of this idea by every member within earshot.

We closed at 2:30 because some members had to return the following morning to help in the assembly of the platform.
