We won't be having an observing session tonight, but see the information below for what's up in the sky:

If the weather is cooperative, we encourage you to get out and look up, but we won't be having an observing event tonight since the ACA (Astronomy Club of Akron - to which most of the people that set up equipment at Fishcreek belong) has a very important outreach event this evening. We'll see you back here at Fishcreek next week, weather permitting of course.

Jet Stream (updates automatically to latest available image)
    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
