Poor weather, OCA Star Party, Julian Star Party , fantastic book by OCA author, Cresent Venus and observing bright lights outside the aircraft window

It's been poor weather for night time observing for about 3 weeks now and too hot for any solar observing.  Luckily, the OCA star party on Saturday had pretty decent weather and we had fun there.  But first before talking about that, lets first check the calendar.

Where are you going to be Saturday, July 15?  Well, be sure to check what New Horizon's spacecraft phones home about the environs of Pluto.  What will we see?

Where are you going to be August 14-15?  If you're in the neighborhood check out the Star festival in Julian.  There will lots of scopes and a couple of days of vendors and lectures.  Should be fun if
