As promised.....Constellation Rd and Blue Tank Rd are both just a little worse for the last rains, but readily passable by passenger car.
Yep, 10 days floating. Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek. A great trip!

Yup. Saturday night so plenty of time to clear (seems clear now) or for more clouds to move in.

I just listened to my little NOAA Weather Radio and the forecast for tomorrow evening is clear!

I'm going to be busy tomorrow, between the medical appointment, a classic car show at the sports facility on 83rd Avenue just south of Bell Road, probably go to the library in Sun City West, and then, as usual, do dinner at Anita's. See you tomorrow night (and I hope W7PP sees that the party is tomorrow).

James! We showed up, the seeing was pretty good, the 'skeeters didn't last too long and it seemed to me a good time was had by all.

The next Wickenburg Star Party will be on October 26. As usual, we'll be at Sophie's Flat. Dress for cooler weather, and look for a conditions report mid-morning on the 26th. Ron, sorry you can't make it, but we'll see you in Tucson at ASAE.
Clear, Dark, and Steady.

The moon rises at Midnight and CLear Sky indicates we could be good until morning with cloud patches in the early morning to dodge. Wanting a gander at the comet.

According to my NOAA Weather Radio, they're calling for partly cloudy, so we'll see what happens. A few wispy high clouds are one thing, but a cirrostratus layer is another.

We'll see what happens.

We started out at dusk w/ about 50% clear. The area of clear moved around during the evening, but by 9 pm we were down to about 30% clear. Weather was perfect. We'll try again next month.
