Vekol rarely had a few clear sucker holes. The clouds made for an incredible sunset with enormous Sun Dogs and later the largest moon halo I've ever seen around a crescent taking nearly the entire western sky. Mars rose brilliant in the East as the crescent set in the West--at one point being meeting directly across from each other. Being determined to make at least one observing note for the drive I finally beat the clouds to NGC 6520--an interesting small chevron shaped open cluster paired with a dark nebula -- just above the teapot spout. Venus greeted me paired with a weather balloon at sunrise making for an initially startling double Venus effect until verified in the binoculars. I agree Thad, another observing night to file under the "#$%*($&" file. I miss observing!
