The last 2016 GLOBE at Night session is underway and lasts until Friday night. The NOAA forecast for tonight is "mostly clear" until 2am (fog then), "partly cloudy" for Wednesday night and Thursday night, and "mostly cloudy" for Friday night. Therefore, tonight would probably be the best bet for measurements.

BRAS VP Ben Toman has pointed out the GLOBE at Night administration has the Over 100 Club for those U.S. states which turn in at least 100 reports in the same calendar year. At this time Louisiana has at least between seventy and eighty 2015 measurements already sent. I can probably generate more tonight. If other BRAS members can generate at least fifteen more we will stand a good chance of getting Louisiana Over 100-certified by GLOBE at Night!

On the 9th of this month I took three final measurements...
*Burbank Drive just north of Staring Lane [ID 14839]
*near entrance of LSU Student Union [ID 14840]
*corner of River Road and North Boulevard [ID 14841]

That makes, I believe, thirty-nine measurements I generated during the 2015 calendar year. I know that Louisiana has over 115 measurements total for 2015, which puts our state in the Over 100 Club!

The official 2015 total for Louisiana is 117! Thanks to the Baton Rouge Astronomical Society and independent measurers. I'd like to see our great state get in 200 measurements this year.
