Just a reminder for this week, 28th/29th, if you happen to have clear skies.  :roll:

Not even one spotted here, either the evening of the 28th or the pre-dawn hours of the 29th. Did see 2 brilliant Iridium flares, one each time, so all's not lost. :-)

   Those Iridium flares are neat!  I did not see anything here.  The skies clouded up and had thunderstorms around 4-5AM.  Earlier when the sky did have some breaks, it was so milky from the humidity and from the light pollution that I could not see anything but the brightest stars. Sad! :sad: :sad: ](*,)
