Public Viewing, SCC Observatory: 12 March 2016

We will be having a public viewing session at the SCC Observatory on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at 7:00 PM (weather permitting). The SCC Observatory is at the Sechelt Airport: entrance is at the gate at the top of Field Rd where you will see this sandwich board sign:

Check out our Observatory page for more information on the SCC Observatory. Please, no food or drinks and only use red light flashlights to preserve viewer’s night vision. No pets or laser pointers please: They are prohibited by Transport Canada regulations for this airfield. We will update this post on 13 February to advise whether the weather will permit us to open that night.

UPDATE 12 March 7:30 AM: The Clear Dark Sky chart is not showing a hopeful forecast for viewing this evening. We’ll keep an eye on it during the day, but it isn’t looking hopeful for opening the observatory at present.

UPDATE 6 PM: forecasting 60% chance of showers with thunderstorms. Small window of visibility at 9 or so, but not long enough to warrant taking a risk. No viewing tonight. However, forecast for Astro Cafe on 18 March looking good at this time.
