I tried to observe (and possibly take photos) yesterday but there were no stars visible at all. I couldn't align my telescope. I only remember this happening when there are clouds... but there were no clouds. Jupiter, Mars and Saturn were completely visible all the time. I'm in just about the most light polluted area there is, but I remember always seeing the few more visible stars. This probably happened many times before and I just didn't notice since it wasn't on days I tried to observe.
What can cause that? Maybe just regular (non-light) pollution? I don't think it was more than usual but who knows. It was pretty humid, much more than it usually is here (it's a very dry city, in general), but last week I observed on a day that was more humid than yesterday.
P.S. I'm not in the USA and there was no fire here.
