    Sky went from good to poor quickly. The big dipper was on the edge of 
    visibility and I was able to find gamma Ursa Major for the one point. I was 
    able to track for approx. 1 minute. Few stars were seen in telescope because 
    of poor conditions but sat clearly visible with one bright flare into the 
    minus mag.
