Nature Bus Star Party to be rescheduled

George Reynolds

In case you were planning to help out with tomorrow's Nature Bus event, it is going to be rescheduled.

Due to an adverse weather forecast for tomorrow, 25 June, the Nature Bus event is being rescheduled to either 2 July or 16 July.  I will know tomorrow (6/25) which date they choose.  The sky will be darker on the 2nd, with no Moon.  Venus will be setting in the west by 9:15, and tiny Mars will follow shortly thereafter.  On the 16th, Venus will still be low in the west at 9:15, but Saturn will rise about 10pm, and the First Quarter Moon will make interesting viewing.  Sagittarius and Scorpius will be fully up by 9:15pm.  On the 2nd, Sgr and Sco will be a bit lower on the horizon.

Please be flexible to respond to either of the two dates they choose.
