Star Party at DRA and Sarah’s

STAR PARTY AT DRA?!

We hear ya thinkin’… “What’s an astronomy club to do when the weather may be good early, but will nearly certainly rot by late?” First, we plan for observing:

TONIGHT — Saturday, October 21, 6:30pm
Damariscotta River Association
110 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta, ME 04543

We’re hedging for a few hours of clear, steady skies, before the clouds roll in from the West. But, we’re also planning for things to go right, even if the weather goes wrong…

 

DINNER AT SARAH’S

Join us at 5:00pm tonight (Saturday, October 21, 2017) for dinner at Sarah’s in Wiscasset. If the weather is as clear at dusk as some forecasts predict, we’ll be off to DRA! If not, we order a few more drinks or desserts, and enjoy armchair astronomy at Sarah’s. Sarah’s is just off Route 1, at the end of the bridge:

TONIGHT — Saturday, October 21, 5:00pm
Sarah’s Cafe
45 Water Street, Wiscasset, ME 04578

(207) 882 7504

This is the substance of many astronomy clubs, who meet for dinner monthly, yet rarely observe together. Until dinner time, we’ll close with the usual wish for…

Clear skies!

CMAS Super Stargazing: Twice the Fun!

This month, there are two chances for star gazing with CMAS, one on Friday night, and the other on Saturday.

 

FLASH MOB AT BOMBAHOOK

The weather is looking spot-on perfect for tonight (Friday), so we’re having a flash mob at Bombahook Observatory (Brian Murphy’s house):

Friday, October 20, 2017, after dark
Bombahook Observatory
8 Sunrise Drive, Hallowell, ME 04347

 

STAR PARTY AT DRA

The usual conflicting forecasts one day ahead (for Saturday) are most intriguing! Some predict some clouds, although likely not enough to stop a star party; others predict perfectly clear skies. We will confirm (or, we hope not, cancel) by Saturday afternoon:

Saturday, October 21, 2017, 6:30pm
Damariscotta River Association
110 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta, ME 04543

 

See you there, one night or the other, or preferably, both!

CMAS October Star Party Postponed

Curses, Batman; foiled again!

CMAS is postponing October’s star party, because the forecasts lean toward a night of thick clouds at DRA. We will not meet tonight (Saturday, October 14, 2017), but will instead plan to meet next Saturday: same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!
