Howdy all; I know that a few folks were talking about going out to Farnsworth's Ranch for an extra night of observing on Thursday evening. It is 1 PM right now and I am locating in an RV park that is 8 miles south of Casa Grande. So, I would estimate that I am about 20 miles from the Messier Marathon site. It is windy! My neighbor has an anamometer on his rig and it says steady 12 to 16 mph and gusting to 34 mph. It isn't gale force, but I would not like to try and use a telescope while it is blowing this hard. The "weather guessors" are saying it will die down tomorrow and be quite good by Saturday. I certainly hope so.
