Acclimated too much to the cold?

Interesting experience a little while ago which tells me it's been
too cold for too long!

Stepped outside to run an errand and the temperature felt very
pleasant and conducive to working in the yard -- but when I checked
Accuweather the temperature given was 46 degrees.

Hope someone had a chance to enjoy the view last night. As for
myself, once I finished working at 5 AM, it was a little too late for
me.

It was a beautiful night last night wasn't it? I'm afraid my observing was limited to the hour or so after the show at the Chesapeake Planetarium.

As most of you know, Kent Blackwell sets up the planetarium's 14-Inch Celestron telescope after the public shows every clear Thursday. I joined him, and the crowd, for views of Saturn, Jupiter, M42 and the Moon last night. Seeing was pretty poor but it was a marvelous evening for stargazing all the same!

I actually observed when I got home. I rolled the 25" out of the trailer. I
never once looked at the moon or planets but did observe a few planetaries
and double stars. The seeing had improved since earlier that evening. Don't
let the moon discourage you; there are still some good objects to view.
