    Thanks for the reminder! I saw this on spaceweather.com the other day. I just hope my skies are clear enough for me to take a peek.

    Thank you, :) I'm excited about the prospects for this year's show. Tonight we have gross weather (patchy freezing drizzle and otherwise dense fog) but this is all supposed to clear away from the mountains tomorrow during the day and give us a clear night. When it's clear it's damn cold outside at night but it will be worth it for the view.

    Same here tonight. My daughter and I were hoping for the best. But it's above freezing, so that's good.

    There's actually a very thick fog over my area, and can hardly see more than a 1/4 mile down the road tonight.
