Righto. Time for someone to confess...

It was supposed to be clear tomorrow night.

Who is the twit receiving nice Astro gear, in Sydney right before new moon ? You knew to do that at first quarter... didn’t you ?

You know who you are, so confess now, and repent now before I send the Russians after you

I bought an eyepiece but..... given I'm in Cairns & we haven't had a decent viewing night in close on a month.... & even then... we only actually get a couple from around Dec - Apr, I suspect I had no effect on your cloud cover...

However.... it's about time you Southies got some cloud cover & we got some clear skies up here I reckon....

Sorry Nick,

I only contemplated buying a newt!

If itís any consolation itís pouring in Darwin, and itís meant to be the dry season.

Sorry Nick.

I bought a dew shield for my 9.25 but I swear I wasn't going to use it straight away.

Maybe between Carlton in Cairns and myself in Melbourne our purchases caused a blanket down the east coast ? If this is the case, I humbly apologise

I don't think a dew shield is enough of a purchase to cause rain in Sydney from Melbourne
