    We were at Holyhead, and had worked out a good viewpoint. At 5am this morning – 100% low cloud, visibility about 1NM.  Some time ago I wrote an article for the Newsletter entitled “On Not Seeing the Perseids”.  Perhaps I should do a sequel called “On Not Seeing the Transit of Venus”.  I might follow that with one on “Not Seeing the Aurora Borealis”, which we didn’t see on a recent trip to Arctic Norway.

    No luck either. I watched the beginning on the internet and went to bed at midnight. I looked out at 3 am and again at 4 am. Cloudy so I decided to go back to bed and got up at 0700 for work.
