10/10/09 BSC star party RECAP By: Steve Short October 11, 2009 12:16AM PDT Views: 4436
We had 15 cars come out and the sky was clear as the sun set...but clouded over at 7:30
I opened the gate at 5:45 pm & David set up his big 13" Celestron, Val brought out his huge 5" refractor and Hassi set up a smaller refractor and everone was viewing Jupiter as the sun set. The belts were clear and the moons were bright. Then Arcturus became visible in the west and Vega up high and even Antares in Scorpio. Then we could see the Summer Triangle but by then most of the remaining sky was clouded over. By 7:30, the entire sky was darkened by clouds so we called it a night and I locked the gate about 8:30.
