    We had a good crowd tonight. 10 of us showed up. Jeff got some great work in on Elvis and Ellenvega finished her Messier observations.
    I got 3 more globular clusters and 2 more binocular double stars. Nearly everyone saw a meteor and some saw quite a few.

    The dew was tough. It was getting frustrating about 2:00 a.m. The last of us pulled the pin at 3 a.m.

    Capt. Kirk pulled another late night arrival. He is getting famous for that!

    The ISS put in a couple of passes. The last one at 10:30 was pretty good. No sign of Randy's light from Whalan. I shined mine toward the SE, but I doubt if anyone besides us saw it.

    A few new faces in the crowd tonight! That's pretty neat.
