Summers in the deep south are always hazy, but this year has been particularly opaque (see the transparency, lines):
Astrospheric is much closer to reality - Even when it's clear of clouds it's not clear. Hazy, white, murky and dull. "Faint fuzzies" now refers to stars, not galaxies! Allegedly the seeing is good, but what good is seeing if you can't see it? LOL
Two weeks ago it was in a rainy pattern, now it's drier precip-wise but very stagnant. We need a frontal broom to come through and sweep the skies clean. Maybe in November... Fortunately we've not seen triple digit highs this summer (yet?) but with 93F - 98F and 65%+ humidity (during the day, up to virtually 100% overnight toward dawn) it feels plenty warm nonetheless.
Oh well, let me go whimper and dream of clearer skies.
