Sugarloaf Friday 17th December was created by michael_murphy

There is a meetup planned for the Sugarloaf on Friday 17th at 8PM.

The final decision to proceed will be taken at 6PM and I will post here whether we are going ahead or not.

Michael.

I know but at this stage I want something before the end of the year.

Hello Michael. 

Do you have any further thoughts about the weather on Friday night?

If so, there will be 3 stars have their occultations with the Moon. 
The first is going to be a K7 star.
These stars can appear almond brown. 
The second and third are a double star called Tau Tauri. 

Now all we need are clear skies.

Aubrey.

Hi Aubrey,

Weather is looking iffy at the moment but we'll make the decision at 6.

Michael.

Thank you, Michael. 

I have such a busy day today Friday. 
So I have decided to empty the car anyway. 
But I won't load up my equipment until nearer 6pm. 

By the way, I'm getting the booster today at 2pm. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Michael and Aubrey,

It looks unlikely I can make it tonight. If I did I could only join you late. But as you say chances of us going to observe are quite slim as the weather forecast does not look promising. 

All the best, 

Darren. 

I did manage to get about 30mins with Jupiter early in the week. So at least that's something!

According to Clear Outside there is about 70% low cloud at 9pm. 

Is anyone else joining us I wonder?

Aubrey.

Hi Aubrey,

The forecast is not looking good but I'm happy to do up and give it a go.
Are you still interested?

Michael.

Yes, Michael. 

I'm still game - even though it's overcast here in Dublin.

Sorry, everyone. Tonight's observing at the Sugarloaf has been cancelled due to far too much low cloud. 

Best regards, 

Aubrey.
