For those of you who had too much Halloween candy and went to bed 
early last night, it was one of the best nights I've seen in a while. 
The sky was very transparent and very steady. I got excellent 
photometric and spectroscopic data last night/early this morning.

After all the trick or treaters left I set up and observed from 
around 11 PM to 2 AM.The temperature was a very nice mid-70's/ All 
equipment worked well and produced excellent data. I was thinking 
about all the folks who enjoy a good view of the Universe. Last night 
would have provided an excellent sky. While this is from the West 
side of Phoenix, I suspect much of central Arizona was also excellent.
