    Or so they think. The forecasts are still being refined but they are now mentioning G3 so Murphy's Law dictates we will have cloud. Sunday and Monday night are the potential dates so far. We'd like it to be Monday looking at the local weather.

    The moon is rising later each night and also getting weaker.

    Here is your outlook. Don't forget to add +12 Hours to the forecasts.

    Alerts just popped up for solar wind arrival. That'll be why it's cloudy
