Activities this weekend (solar and night)


James Cantu
 

Two things:
1) Lee has made arrangements to host solar viewing at the Blount County Library Saturday, April 23rd from 11a-1p. This was a rather serendipitous arrangement as he dropped into the library today and had much success with the patrons and librarians. I plan to join with my white light filtered scope and my Coronado PST. As such we are electing to make this a SMAS event and welcome all to join. If think you might be interested in setting up solar viewing, or just dropping feel free to respond here. I will add an event to the Group.io calendar. 

2) Saturday night (third Quarter star party). I'm watching the weather. We are looking at partly cloudy as far as I can see, and Friday looks the same to me. 
This is for Look Rock but close enough for estimates. https://www.cleardarksky.com/c/LkRckTNkey.html?1 
We'll keep an eye on the weather, but if anyone wants to contribute their meteorological predictions please contribute. 

Best regards, 
James Cantu
