Wow, here I thought it was just Pennsylvania. Was hoping to go out tonight but again...cloudy. Had a few nice nights back in June but July was a bust and August hasn't been any kinder so far. If it's anywhere close to new moon...clouds. Hoping and praying to get a clear night Thursday/Fri for the meteor shower as I always take off work for that. So far the forecast doesn't look promising. I sometimes wonder if this is all worth it considering my work schedule and cloudy PA weather doesn't give me too many options but I still enjoy getting out even if it's only a few nights in the summer. Very frustrating though.
Ditto here in NJ. I was ecstatic that after getting my new dob in April, I was able to observe on 3 nights in the first week. I've got maybe 12 nights under my belt total now, but only one short night in the last 7 weeks since mid June. Even on days with no or few clouds, the transparency was just normally bad, or bad from the wildfire smoke. I was so looking forward to the warmer summer months, but mother nature has had other plans. I'm hoping the law of averages kicks in soon and we get a good run of cloudless nights.
