The night started with clouds causing Jupiter to peak in and out, but everyone who came was able to view it, although a couple visitors did have to wait for a clear section of sky. After changing the telescope to the Lagoon Nebula, we all ran out for a look at one of the brighter Iridium flares to be visible in quite a while. For new guests who had not seen Jupiter earlier, we went back to the planet, which was observed by all, just before the clouds came back. This time, they didn't break up, and we closed for the evening about 9:00
