FYI, I just went outside to prepare for the double Iridium flare pass and I'm not going to see it. Clouds are in the way and the region is under a heavy fog advisory.

Disappointed at the very least.

I hope there will be clear skies that morning, but will be trying to get more camera time to practice before this one.
