West Optical Observatory
WEATHER UPDATE: 11:30 PM EDT 14 APRIL 2014. Rain is coming down and expected through morning, with potential for thunderstorms. We regret that these conditions mean we won't be opening for the eclipse. We thank you for stopping by and hope for clear skies for the next celestial event.
WEATHER NOTICE: Skies over PARI are cloudy and the prediction is for the overcast conditions to continue through the night, with rain and potential thunderstorms. We will continue to monitor the sky conditions and post here around midnight tonight the possibility of opening up the telescope to view the lunar eclipse.
