Chicago Astronomer Star Party
Sunday - 01 April 2012
We are going to try and conduct our next Chicago Astronomer Star Party Sunday, the 1st of April at 7:00 pm. - just south of the Adler Planetarium building. Extended weather forecasts call for a very warm day, (in the 80's!!), and mostly clear skies - but there is a possibility of rain later.
We will have a sky full of delightful targets to enjoy and share with our fans, friends and visitors - including the Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, star clusters, binaries and nebulae.
It is uncertain for a solid go for this session due to weather - I recommend monitoring this thread and follow the Chicago Astronomer on Twitter/Facebook/emails for updates and confirmations.

I can almost guarantee that I won't be there. My little unpaid vacation earlier this month (all the while I was spending money like a congressman), has left me counting every penny until I get paid again next Friday. With gas skyrocketing, I think a trip downtown will be out of the question. If the weather is decent, though, I'll probably do my own sidewalk session here in town, and will be looking for your lasers across the Lake.
