Ha I wish I had the know-how or else I would take you up on it, we hired someone to do our roof, and our fence is on the verge of falling, but insurance has told me and the family that until it falls it's not covered. And yea those storms honestly reminded me of Hurricane Michael which I experienced in Florida while I was there on business a few years ago. That was the first time in my life actually concerned about the weather here in California lol. I look forward to seeing you all again, I missed the Venus/Jupiter event sadly but I did at least get a whispy look at Comet ZTF before it disappeared.
My star chart is on the shelf nearby and I promise you all that as soon as Im able to get a night of solid observations in I will be out there, On that note what targets would you reccomend for this time of year? I imagine the Orion Nebula by now is too low to see. Im honestly not familiar with the night sky in this time of the year. Anyway, hope you all are well, and in good health.
