Thunderstorms and in the high 70s. We went to the ballgame last night and it was delayed 2 hours. We didnít get home until late late.

That sucks Kwak. Rain delays can be very expensive!

Nice enough we went to the lake beach.
Clear skies tonight. I'll be galaxy hunting. I bagged 15 a couple nights ago. 5 were spirals, like our own.
Shame, my short list was 41. I'll go back to it. Ursa Major- Canes venaceti. I'll keep Virgo in my back pocket as the 100 or so there always lead to easy Pickens. No astrophotography, I sketch them in a journal if I can identify them in the eyepiece.
Had dinner-
Waiting for darkness
Cheers!

Clear skies till 1130, but transparency was "soupy" due to thin layer of high clouds.
Only galaxies I could make out were M87, and the "downtown Virgo group", aka, the "local group" or the
"Markarian chain."
M87 is the recently famous "black hole galaxy."

Rainy all day. Severe weather warning, tornado warning for this afternoon again. Remnants of yesterday's storms in the Plains states.

What a difference a day makes. Grey, rainy and cool here.

Another stormy one.
Spent a half hour last night huddled in basement as a cloud with rotation that was noticed by NWS in Scranton made its way out through the gap into NJ. Never dropped a funnel, but saw video of it. Clearly had rotation.

Yeah, they rolled through our area earlier in the day. Scary stuff. I was at the grocery store yesterday and noted to the kid at the register that it looked scary outside. He said "the mountains will protect us though" to which I replied "I wouldn't be so sure." I saw a tornado pass by the office building I worked at back in 1999 IIRC. It was pretty eerie; it was veiled in rain so it just looked like a rain squall going by. It wasn't that powerful though. It was heading right for downtown Pittsburgh but veered south and touched down near where many of the steel mills used to be so it did minimal damage. We've had microbursts that were more intense and have taken down some pretty large trees.
