I took pictures of clouds a couple of days ago. It's a decent pastime for when that bright shiny thing is out...

Since getting into this hobby, I spend more time looking at my weather app than I do my astronomy app...

Currently under an inversion in the Colorado valley I call home. Clouds move in, they don't move out. Not easily at least. Pretty sure it's my fault for buying two new telescopes.

I'm jealous you all at least have pretty clouds to look at!
