    Default The SUN The SUN



    Looked outside this morning and the sun was shining. Had some coffee, watched the local news and looked out the window again... Yup, the sun was still out there... no clouds... no rain... no sleet...... Yeaaa!!!! Seems like it has been weeks since we had a day without bad stuff. If it keeps up, I will be able to go outside with my trusty chain saw, clear a path in the debris and look for a clear dry spot on which I may actually set up my telescope and look at the stars :-)

    Corky - that sun will spoil you. I've had it for two days... I've missed that old fella (well young I guess)! Hoping for a clear weekend for you.

    Hi Corky. Congratulations on some sunshine. Now, get that chainsaw out and clear a path to the heavens with your telescope. We had sunshine yesterday, but also high winds. Today was also sunshine, but some clouds are starting to come back in. Thanks for your report, and I hope that you have some great observing nights ahead of you.
