The new ENSO (EL NIÑO/SOUTHERN OSCILLATION) report is out, and the news is not good for observers.


They are predicting that "El Niño is likely to continue through the Northern Hemisphere summer 2019 (70% chance) and fall (55-60% chance)."

 

So the southern Pacific moisture tap will remain in place for the forseeable future; from the looks of it, right into and through our monsoon.

Opportunities for observation can still be found. I took this image Friday last week.

If not stars at least we will get another precious gift from the sky in the form of rain.

...and I just set up a show at Villanueve with Samuel for the 31st of this month.  Tom, from NM Star Gazers will probably go with me this year if there is any chance of a sky, but anybody is welcome to show.  2-4 scopes is probably best.

Beautiful shot! Not with your dob, I assume?
