I want to like this, but I don't want to inflate the cloud's ego and think they are welcome.

You are not alone, sir. This is the first above freezing weekend I've had in ages, moon here to say hello. I am considering early bed and getting up around 2 or so just to get some astro time!

The clouds often like to part when the bright Moon is present to obliterate the DSO ohmy.gif

We in north Georgia feel your pain.  Over 20 inches more rain in 2018 than the 30 average and this years is continuing the trend.

It's a known fact that clouds (which are made of water) are affected by lunar tidal forces much like the oceans. Tides have a few hour delay behind the moon's gravity. Clouds, being much lighter, have around a two week delay, which puts them smack dab on the new moon.

JK, thank you for finally coming up with a sensible explanation for what I've known for decades to be a fact.

Well had a physically tiring day at work. Loaded up all my gear into the pickup, went to bed early. Slept through my alarms and woke up at 6 LOL. Ugh. I guess some visual would be ok but I want to do some photography, dangit!

Wish I could read this chart.  As it is, ignorance is bliss.

Matt:

 

It's been a bad few months for me, worst in several years.  The new moon after Christmas was productive but the January-February new moon was spent in Montana taking care of our granddaughter, lots of clouds and snow. This most recent new moon was rainy and cloudy.  

 

It finally cleared up last week but I have been sick with a fever and the flu with possibly a bit of pneumonia.
