And we have had more cloud in any summer that I remember in Perth in the last twenty years! Or it could be that I now care since getting into astronomy!

It's a good time of the year. Many of the skies best planetaries and galaxies are on show aswell in the form of NGC 3132, 3242, Eskimo, NGC 3918 etc , Centaurus A, M83, M104 and the Leo/Virgo galaxy fields.
At least Perf is getting a summer, if I was a beach babe here, especially this cold wintry February, I would've busted a good few nerves by now lol

Stay up late enough and you get Virgo galaxies and Scorpius!
