5 people. Unlikely as may seem yours truly and four guests showed up last night. The cloud cover that preceded the Saturday storm (already 3.5 inches of rain) was forming. However four objects could be seen, Vega and Deneb overhead, the Moon in the southwest and a humongous great arc light that seems to be coming from Foxwoods. About every thirty seconds, the beam swept across the sky outshining the Moon. Oh joy, just what we need, a gazillion Watt searchlight illuminating our once dark skies. The darn thing is probably dangerous. I think it vaporized a small plane that was foolish enough to fly into the beam.
