Dear CAS members, 
Just a reminder of tonight's program. The weather doesn't look too promising 
for viewing but Steve Raleigh of Channel 9 is going to mention the event on 
tonight's early weather. Hopefully we'll get another nice turnout. 
Tonight's event is free to CAS members so be sure to stop out.
