Hi.

I was supposed to be cloudy all day long but around 9am, my wife woke me up and pushed me outside to benifit a big hole in the clouds... But no time to make a close up of the big one, the hole was too small.

Later in the afternoon, the big prom finally lift off. For the first time, I'm really happy she's gone, she gave me lot of effort to draw this one.

Andre.

Very nice and it's fun to go back one day and see what I was looking at with my smaller PST scope.

Thanks for sharing...Bob
