Tonight, Saturday March 2, 2013 was my dark night and though the Clear Sky Clock showed no clouds, it lied. The sky was overcast with high thin to chunky clouds that have continued to drift over. We finally called it off at 4 PM. There is a hole coming but it will reach Las Vegas just about the time the moon rises, so it's not worth it to bother. I feel your pain!

For the past several years, the Clear Sky Clock has increasingly become inaccurate in Mobile. Often when clear, transparent skies are forecast, it is not only overcast, it's raining. During the past three montths, I can only think of two or three nights where the skies were tolerable for observing DSO's at lower magnifications. The seeing here has been poor to so bad I cannot focus my telescopes at all.

Why not just print one that, instead of numbering the days, just says Yes or No. There will have to be some yes's, right?

The one thing it does not do here, is snow. If that happenes the way it does where you are, then something drastic has happened. We were getting severe thunderstorms and a tornado almost hit my neighborhood on Christmas Day. That is not normal even in the Deep South.

Cool. A time lapse of snow would be cool. Post a link to the video if you decide to do that.

According to the weather channel last night, it was supposed to be sunny and partly cloudy for tonight. IT LIED!!! It's completely overcast.

It has been one of those winters, at least here on the East Coast of the US. Lots of clouds, lots of drizzle or flurries, and not much else.

Of course, at least clouds go away, while trees you don't own stay there - ah, well... here's to clear skies eventually!

Lately here it's been nice and clear during the day and cloudy at night. Middle of the week should have clear nights, but it will be windy. Just can't catch a break.

Cool vid, Neilmac. Around 4:25 or so, you can see it pick up on the snow coming down.

When I took the garbage out last night around 6ish or so, the sky was overcast with thick clouds. Went to bed kind of early, around 8ish. Woke up at 5am to get ready for work. Walked outside, sky was freakin CRYSTAL CLEAR!!!! #$%%^%#@$% If I would have known, I would have gotten up around 3am and setup the scope. UGH!!!!! I can't win.

Yup thats why Ive been thinking of placing a remote webcam outside to check the skies.
We still have snow falling even though its light now lol. The +10c we had was enough to melt most of the snow only to be replaced once again LOL.
