Not a bad night for a predicted 70% chance of rain. I guess weather forecasters are no different anywhere in the world, they rely too much on computer analysis rather than looking out the window. Our first really cold, crisp night this season, cold for us is 34 degrees. If only this weather holds for the Leonids, the weathermen are betting against it!!

Nice images!

Those are great images, Polaris looks beautiful all on its own in the dark starry background. Orion is gorgeous of course.

Weather for the Leonids will be touch and go for us at the min although I have hopes of seeing something.
