Read Frosty Drew Observatory and Science Center's Update on the Novel Coronavirus

24 people. This was a terribly frustrating night. Clouds all but hid the sky but in that lies the frustration. They didn't quite close the sky off. We could get glimpses of the Moon and Jupiter interspersed with pale gray disks lacking all detail. On any rational scale of seeing, tonight had to rate close to zero. We did what we could but it was a disappointment for everyone. I couldn't even do a proper star identification session. Sigh.

Next week will be Big Apple Circus. This means that we will be targeting only the brightest objects. Maybe in two weeks we can try for some of the summer sky's famous clusters and nebulae.
