THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
I cancelled this early as besides the forecasts of clouds tomorrow evening, the weather service has issued a winter storm warning for Saturday night.
The second member night at CRO in February is on Saturday, February 10.
Sunset is at 1835 (6:35pm). Nautical twilight begins at 1837. Astronomical twilight begins at 1907. Twilight ends and true night begins at 1937.
The moon sets at 1917 (8:23PM) and is a Waning Crescent (1.9%).
Check the weather forecasts and check back here to ensure it will be good viewing weather and CRO will be open.
If anyone is coming that can open the 14” or 30” scopes, please post on here that you will be attending and it will be open.
If you’re planning to come out, please post on here that you are coming.
If you want to be guided to CRO, please post here and check back to see if a CRO member can meet and guide you. CRO members, please post what time you can meet any members needing guides. Please make arrangements to meet directly with whoever will be guiding you.
The location of the observatory is also now searchable in both Google Maps and Apple Maps. Search for Cheddar Ranch Observatory, Watonga, OK, and it should appear and give you directions if you want. It might also appear in your GPS app/program.
Clear and dark skies!
