Title: Saturday night, Dinosaur Point, c'mon out
Post by: DDK on November 08, 2017, 03:43:42 PM
Weather looks good, moonrise isn't till 1 am. This is Saturday, 11 November.
One gatekeeper will definitely be there, me.

has everything you need to know. It's pretty simple, just show up before dark. Beautiful spot, seriously dark, cordial people go there.
See you in the dark,
Jamie

You'll only see an OI from a gatekeeper here if it's certain that we're gonna be there. So you can rest assured of leaving, once you're there.

Sounds good.  I'd come, except that I'm going to Death Valley this weekend -- not really to observe, but to tool around in my 4wd and see the geology.  Have a good one at Dino.

After the geology, do look up at night. It's supposed to be dark in Death Valley. Yes and be safe, Dan.

Right now Friday am, the NOAA forecasts Sunday to be better for clear skies than Saturday with Saturday being partly cloudy all day and into the night.  By Sunday it is forecast to be totally clear, the only clear day for the week.  I might decide to get out on Sunday night up at the Peak for a few hours.  I'll decide on Dino by Saturday noon.

What I'm getting right now from Wunderground and from NOAA is chance of clouds both nights, with slightly more chance of rain Sunday night. I'm sticking with Saturday now.

Can't resist for the nth+1 time paraphrasing James Turley - DDK is getting ready to rumble. Find out what Dino is like tonight.

Yet another Saturday night at Dino. This is for November 18.
I'm a gatekeeper -- I will stay until midnight, weather permitting, maybe later.
