Bugger.  Completely overcast conditions and raining.
There'll be no viewing the Saturn /Jupiter star of Bethlehem tonight.   :(

I had a preview last night. The sky was too bright to see Saturn without binoculars. Tonight is as for everyone else.  Bugger!

Saw them last night, as above needed monocular to see Saturn as well. Knew it’d be a write off tonight based on forecast.

My friend in Whitstable had clear skies and excellent naked-eye views on Saturday or Sunday night. (Can't remember which!)

I caught a naked eye glimpse throught the gap in the buildings and hedges last night. Tonight? I guess I'll be looking for the Lowell Observatory live feed in a bit.

I took binoculars to the local park on Sunday, between putting the spuds and the veg on. It was nice to see, even though mine are low power. Even better, by being in public I got to talk to some strangers for the first time in ages.
