    Predicted cloud cover in the northeast but I'll get up to try and see them anyway.

    Last year I spent an hour looking out of the window for meteors at the peak time. All I saw was one bright one, and one faint one. Hardly worth the time, and getting a stiff kneck.

    Was driving home about 1:30am and pulled over to take a gander (and to take a piss LOL).

    Orange crescent moon setting was lovely. Waited about 10 minutes- nuttin'.

    We got up at 0400 and went to a local dark spot by the lake. Saw a few before the clouds and sunrise drowned them out.
