Despite what it looks like outside now, the forecast is good. To
quote the Wonderground:
> Tonight: Mostly clear. Patchy fog after midnight. Lows in the upper
> 60s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.
and the CSC predicts both clear and decently transparent from 8:00
on. Can't beat that in August.
So, i'll be visiting Jayme's house from shortly before sundown 'til at
least midnight. It hasn't got the best horizons, but it's about a
half magnitude darker than (and about the same distance away as)
Farrington, and a lot closer than Medoc. If you haven't been to
observe there before, tonight will be a good opportunity. Come out
and observe some sky!
