It was a prom smorgasboard today so captured as many as I could while the clouds and seeing held.  Some passing clouds played havoc with the sky background but some of the motion in the proms is really nice.

Very best,

 
Thanks Marty! Sorry you only had that small sucker hole to shoot through as I would have loved to see a high resolution shot of that Northwestern group!

Thanks John! Really nice to see that much activity!

Seeing was best (other than the occasional cloud!) during that capture.

Nice compilation!

Hard to choose, but I always like the quiet ones,,,  more mysterious I guess.

I've been socked in again (as usual frown.gif ), hopeful for a clear weekend.

Thanks Warren waytogo.gif

Wow! Maybe your best yet. You really are the animation master!

I saw all that on GONG today but my sky has been a complete white out pretty much for the last 2 months!

Very nice we have been away and didn’t bring a scope because of the forecast.

Great animations , the dim prom shows a lot of raining down movement, very nice
