Last night I wanted to do photometry on the HADS star V376 Cam but it has quite a long period (about 3h 20m) and when I looked on my weather app for cloud and rain there was an enormous band of rain approaching from the west which I estimated would take about an hour to arrive. So I decided I would make a start in preparation for another time. As that band of rain approached Essex the part due to hit just fizzled out and as you can see I had 7 hours of clear sky. That sort of thing only happens in dreams. It was still clear when I packed up!
