Rain arrives to spoil the party

Black clouds over NorfolkAs more and more skycampers arrive at Kelling Heath, Norfolk’s weather is changing for the worse and it is currently raining. Here is a view this morning at around 10am of black clouds in the sky to the west.

Last night started well, completely devoid of any cloud once again. But many observers complained that it was brighter and milkier than previous nights. Most still managed to get plenty of observing in before 3am when thin high cloud was obscuring much of the sky.

Happy birthday to Howard Brown-Greaves who arrived last night and is celebrating his birthday here today.
