    Fortunately yesterday evening the sky was clear (until fog moved in) so I had the chance to photograph and look at the moon with my binoculars.
    Too bad that today the sky is cloudy!

    It's beautiful and orange through the clouds here in Cheshire, UK. Not worth getting the scope out for as it won't appear in my back garden until very late tonight (and I'm not going to drive anywhere now), so I'll sit and watch through the bins.

    I'm still a bit hopeful, it's not looking so terrible.
