The star party at Port Gamble is cancelled for tonight as the site is still closed. Some of us are going up to Hurricane Ridge if you care to join us. The night sky looks like it will be amazing and it doesn’t look to cold although there are still snow patches.
Check out this amazing astrophoto of NGC 7023, the Iris Nebula, a bright nebula in Cepheus. There is a lot of cosmic dust surrounding the massive young stars in it’s center! Thank you Al Tuttle for sharing. See more of Al’s amazing photos at: http://www.alberts-astro.com/astro/Astropics/2014-2017/index.html
