Public Night Log

Finally, last night we had a classic Frosty Drew brilliantly clear sky night. June is one of our best months for observation at Frosty Drew and last night great. We started off with a beautiful waxing crescent moon and Saturn. Later we moved to m104, m5, m13, m92, m57, m8, m16, m17, m20, m22, ngc6826, ngc7009, m3, and we finished the night off with a rough confirmation of the supernova visible in m51. Abducted Mike and Ariel came out last night to enjoy the skies and everyone had a blast. We closed up around 2:45 and counted 64 signatures in our guestbook. Tonight looks to be another beautiful night for observation, so head up to Seagrave Observatory in N. Situate http://www.theskyscrapers.org/ for another night of spectacular viewing.
