The End of the Season (sigh)
I haven’t given up on the possibility of a dark site star party in November, or even December. But the chances are it will be cloudy when the New Moon comes, and it will definitely be raining more as the season changes, so Starship Gamma Pictoris (my star party home-away-from-home and mobile gallery) has been covered up and prepared for cold weather.
It’s always a little sad to see the end of the astronomy season, but the truth is that I usually get as many images from my home observatory during the winter as I do at star parties in the summer. And with the holiday season fast approaching, there will be no shortage of activity here at Wa-chur-ed Observatory. I’ll be telling you about a lot of events, new products, and other big changes over the next few months.
