I noticed this as well.  We set up the ETX125 in the driveway and flanked by
bowls of candy gave the trick or treaters a real good time.  Had one kid and
his parents come back 4 times and they only wanted candy on the first round!

Subject: [AZ-Observing] Friday Night Seeing

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.
