Was a total bust.
I had two cameras charged up, ready to go and waiting by a the back door for the right moment. Then the sun began to set, and the clouds did not dissipate until 11pm.
I’ll admit, I am a tad jealous of those in other cities that were able to get some decent shots, but glad I’m not one of the people who bought a telescope just to witness a cloudy night.
Gotta keep looking at the bright side!
