As of 10 am this morning, Tuesday July 31st, I reviewed 10 different
weather forecasts for tonight in Cave Creek. The following are the averages:
37% clouds 6 mph winds 12% rain
Because of Monsoon season the reports varied greatly Clouds 0% to 85%
wind 4 mph to 12 mph rain 0% to 38 %
Mars will be the subject of Ron Walkers 7 pm planetarium show at the Star
Barn in Cave Creek. Afterwards, around 9 pm or later, Mars will be observed
through some telescopes.
Even though there is a global dust storm on Mars, latest reports are that
the polar ice caps should be visible and perhaps a few other features may
be seen. This will be the closest approach of
Mars to the Earth in 15 years and it will be many more years until it is
this close again. Mark Johnston of PAS will have his refractor and I will
have my newtonian. There may be other telescopes as well. We will only set
up our scopes if the weather is ok.
If you are coming out to Cave Creek tonight, please RSVP with Ron Walker
at the Starbarn. Remember, no bathroom facilities.
Take care, Sam Insana
