Still a little unsettled

The weather is still a little unsettled here.....get a nice day or two and then it's back to clouds and cool temps.
We did manage to get two clear nights over the past week and some of us took advantage of them with our cameras and telescopes.I had the A-610 set up and shooting continuously on both nights.Caught a rather bright meteor in the east late Thursday night however it was not the really bright one that was reported in the media.That one was earlier according to what was reported and also from speaking with an eyewitness.

Have a great week.
