Public Viewing, SCC Observatory: 9 July

We will be having a public viewing session at the SCC Observatory on Saturday, July 9, 2016, at 9:00 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 9 July to advise whether the weather will permit us to open that night.

UPDATE, 7:30 AM, 9 July: It is pouring rain right now, but at present ClearDarkSky shows that we’ll have a clear window at 9 PM, so for now the plan is still to open the observatory tonight. I’ll be posting another update this afternoon.

UPDATE, 1500 hours, 9 July: Still looking good for opening the SCC Observatory tonight at 9 PM.

UPDATE, 18:30 hours, 9 July: Our member up at the airport is reporting 85-95% overcast at present, which doesn’t sound promising. Looks like we’re not going to be able to open the observatory tonight.
