I was out on my back deck last night talking with my daughter in Ohio. I was amazed at just how clear the skies were and how the stars twinkled and the Milky Way was easily visible. Although I wasn't planning on observing, I couldn't let this night go by without a little viewing. I went inside after saying good bye to Rachel and I told my wife I was going out to observe. I said that the skies were dazzling and I couldn't let it go by. I picked up my eye pieces and headed out the door where I stopped dead in my tracks. The skies were overcast from horizon to horizon. It wasn't like a front passed through, the clouds just appeared out of no where. Jupiter was just barely visible in the clouds. Where did all the clouds come from, they weren't there two minutes ago.
I turned around and went back inside and put my equipment away. It's amazing what you witness as an amateur astronomer.
