Hi Elyse,

There are various weather sites around. There is the BOM http:// or 7timer, just click on your location to place a pin, hover over the pin then select astro. I also use an app, Astro Panel, on my phone. Any plenty more. Its not looking good for this weekend.
Where abouts in Kinglake do you go? Nice darks skys up here.

I assumed I'd still be able to see it though.

Also, was going to ask where's a good place to look up weather? I want to go down to kinglake next weekend, any idea if it will be ok weather wise?

Also stellarium is awesome
