Well.. It's supposed to be nice and clear Thursday and Friday night. I took a half a day off for Thursday and all of Friday off so I can stay up all night long. I want to try out my NI5 and I am determined to see Saturn.

Here near Syracuse in Central New York, we 'enjoy' the least amount of clear skies of any community area of similar size except sometimes the Seattle area.

Not getting a lot of action around here lately either. The moon finally goes away and the clouds come back. :/

We haven't had a single day this year when there was no snow or ice falling. The Global Weather Center's long range predicted warm up for March appears to be inaccurate. Today it is snowing moderately, probably enough to require shoveling tonight if it keeps up. We already have an average seasons worth of snow with the total being 170".

There's gotta be a real history behind naming your town Snow Plop......or a great sense of humor!

...but then, I've lived in Knob Knoster....

Well Im hoping with all the snow it will empty the sky and give a small window before it replenishes up again LOL.
Stopped snowing an hour ago with the odd swift peak by the sun, still windy though at -15c.

Bought a new LX 200 3 weeks ago....which precipitated 13 cloudy days in a row. 2 semi-clear nights, and cloudy again.....supposed to be clear tonight, but I won't hold my breath.

Please!! Nobody hate me, but the skies cleared up.

Enjoyed 3 nice hours of observing Jupiter, M42, and some various stars. I came in to warm up some. Going to go back out around 1ish to look at Saturn.

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.

It may be even worse over here in Orange Beach
