Pine Glades 7/29/16

Late in the afternoon, the clouds cleared from the surrounding thunderstorms and the
call was made to go ahead with the event. An Iridium Flare was forecast to happen at
8:39, almost directly overhead in the Constellation Hercules. Since the Sun didn’t set
until 8:10 PM, the sky was still fairly bright and no flare was observed. We did however
enjoy a beautiful sunset with the many colors reflecting off the clouds in the west.
Scopes and cameras were set up and expectations were high. Slowly however, high thin
clouds started to drift in from the east and build up in the south. Still, many great views
where observed, such as, Saturn with its rings tilted just right to show the separations,
Mars with its Ice caps, Jupiter with its 4 moons, M5, M13, M51 and many others. By 10:30
PM the clouds had drifted in, covering the Sky about 80%. We packed up and all left by
11:00.
In attendance where, Hans Haynau, Bob Guzauskas, Joe Ianni, Eleanor Harris, Irene
Garbo, Mike Ikona, Sid Gardino, Kent Rimey, Nexon Louis, and myself.
