I find nights with big fluffy clouds passing by offer incredible views. Yes, it gets obstructed at times but the amazingly clear air between them delivers jewels.

Straight overcast, well, yeah I can do without.

I could move somewhere with clear air all the time, but I'd miss my family. A high altitude plateau in Chile appeals to me in so many ways, but there are more than a few reasonable arguments to the contrary.

I could deal with big fluffy clouds.. It's the overcast skies and rain. They are saying this has been the third wettest February on record for SC.. I am hoping for lots of clear skies for March..

It's been a couple of months for me too, and this morning looked just like that pretty picture from NeilMac in Alberta.

So I'm doing what any reasonable person would do. I'm buying eyepieces.

Clear skies,full moon and high winds all night are just pure torcher here this week. Grrr!!! I think I would rather have overcast skies than to see what I can't observe with my telescope!

I would like to catch the person who keeps painting my Clear Sky Chart with white out.

I think mother nature is teasing me.. The skies are all nice and clear right now. But the moment the sun goes down, it's going to cloud up.

On the plus side maybe we'll have clear skies with the new moon period for a change!

I'm sick of the clouds too. I bought a 2" visual back, an expensive 2" ep and a nice pair of bino's many weeks ago and really have had only a couple good, dark nights with them. And what's up with the wind? We've had March winds all winter long, along with April showers in January and February... it's all messed up! ....Phil

I torcher myself on cloudy nights by looking at some "wazzup for tonight" site.

I'm still in reverse-curse: no scope and clear skies... not only clear skies.. but I think I might, maybe live in green zone.

You can find out by getting the Google Earth plug in. I am in Red Zone.

The weatherman just said another week of dark, gray dreary weather due to a low pressure system that's stalled over the northeast. Swell.

Maybe it'll break next Wednesday, when my new scope gets here!

Was totally clear bright day and then clouded over after the sun set yesterday. This morning again it has now totally cleared, nothing like being teased and in the evening running out every hour to see if its cleared up LOL.

I'm sick being inbetween scopes. Missed last night's view of light from 2013 and 1753 simulaneously. That would have been easy. ;-(
