C. E. Scovil Observatory


C. E. Scovil Observatory is named in honor of Charles E. Scovil. Charles produced variable star charts for the AAVSO for over thirty-five years. He is the author of the AAVSO Variable Star Atlas and recipient of both the AAVSO Director's Award and the Astronomical League's Leslie Peltier Award for his work in the field of variable star research.

"Chaz" is a bit of a living legend in the AAVSO, and I'm glad to have him as a mentor and friend.

Below is the Clear Sky Clock for the observatory, indicating whether or not we will have clear skies tonight for observing.
