A note those planning to go to the "no charge to attend" Chiefland Astrofest Star Party, if you have sent in your waivers but didn't get a response, try sending another e-mail to them without an attachment to confirm your attendance with them (as it appears that some e-mails may not have been received by them.)
The image below is the Sun's disk today and any sunspots currently visible (via NASA's SOHO satellite).
Watch this coming Fall and Winter for Astronomy events in Florida parks and with Astronomy clubs from dark sky sites. I'll list the ones I hear about on the Florida Astronomy Events page.

EVERY DAY IS ASTRONOMY DAY! Hi, I'm Jason Higley, I've made this website so that we all can find things related to Florida Astronomy. Behind me is the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University 1 meter telescope in Daytona Beach (I was just visiting). They have free public viewing nights roughly 6 times a year.
Please feel free to let me know if you have Florida Astronomy related news or info at reachjasonh@ (and add gmail.com to the end of that.)
And lastly, in case you are curious about some of the ways I approach Astronomy, here's a link to my Astro Images (and other related stuff) page.
