No people. On our nearly mythical FDO viewing scale, we managed a 0.124875 tonight. The Moon was visible for short periods as a ghostly glow behind the clouds. Nothing else of the least astronomical interest was visible. I didn't bother to even make the short drive from my house. For anyone who showed up, and wanted to know where everyone was (as happened on the previous almost totally overcast night), we were doing something more satisfying like cleaning the lint out of the big buttons on the sofa. Never let it be said that astronomers can't find something else to occupy cloudy nights. Well, back to the sofa buttons. See you next week.
