The curse of Astronomy. aka Cloud Watching

The local astronomy club has a star party scheduled for tonight in Stow. As one of those who must determine if we are a go or no go depending upon the weather, I sit unproductively and stare at the sky. the beautiful blue skies that led great promise for tonight have all but vanished. above me is a band of grey approaching from the south. As we draw closer to the time to make a decision. It is impossible to know for sure if this grey will remain or clear in time for tonight. We have had days where we cancelled only to have the sky clear later. unfortunately, people need to know before the last-minute so it is a tough decision.

Perhaps if next time we call it a cloud watch the skies will be clear and bright. But until then, I’ll keep watching the sky and wait…
