April 20th star party cancelled. We'll try again Saturday the 21st

Our monthly First Quarter Friday star party would have been tonight, Friday the 20th, but the forecast is terrible and the sky is looking like the forecast. Saturday night looks promising though, so we're cancelling tonight and we'll try again tomorrow (Saturday the 21st). The star party will be at the College Hill Reservoir, 24th and Lawrence in Eugene. Come on up and see some of the great sights in the Spring sky. The star party starts at dusk, which should be about 8:15 this time of year.

Thank you to the Canadian Meteorlogical Center and for this forecast of our observing conditions:
