You go outside and look up at the clouds?

You whine because of the clouds instead of the light pollution?

Don't you have a UPS or generator at your site? I bet most east coast telescopes are parked now anyway because of the wind.

I was always amazed at the tourists that would show up at our site and be absolutely amazed that the astronomers were collecting data during the day. An overwhelming majority of them seriously believed you could only use a radio telescope at night.

Well, apparently if your in San Diego and you finally get a shot at the whole city going dark, and you think that's awesome and you'll get to see more stars and planets and the milkyway? Well thats when the full moon decides to show its face and piss on everything. Because fark you, I'm the moon, that's why. Still bitter.
