    Good for you fellows to get out on Friday. Too bad I guessed wrong on which night would be clear.

    I got out tonight for one hour. I waited until the Twins got beat by the Yankees (close but no cigar) and then headed out. It was still breezy, but doable. Then I kept getting these cloud banks that just kept rolling thru like freight cars. I did manage to get NGC 4346 for my Herschel 400 list, but other than that, it was binocular looks at old fav's like the Perseus Double Cluster, the Pleadies, the Orion Nebula, M35 in Gemini.

    Thank God for binoculars. They are light and quick.

    One really positive note: it's getting warmer!
