Just as I hit the send button, we looked at the Clear Sky chart for our
desert observing location, and it went from "Clear" to "Cloudy" . :-(
So anyone contemplating a trip to see the stars, let's try again another
time. Mojo and I are still heading out to Joshua Tree National Park for
wildflowers but might do our stargazing at Disneyland tonight instead.
;-) Do look up tonight! Venus, Moon, Saturn and Mars are waiting!
In addition to sidewalk astronomy next weekend, here is a great free talk:
"Quest for a living World" moderated by "Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait.
It's free and open to the public starting at 7:30 at the Beckman Auditorium.
