    As the forecast thunderstorms have as yet to materialise and there are no signs of them appearing anytime today then perhaps we will get to see it. Unfortunately I will miss it as my medication knocks me out and I will probably be sleeping when it occurs.

    Oh I was gonna say, I doubt I'll photo it this time as the atmosphere will be so hazy there won't be much detail in the shot.

    I saw one in the last century and eek! I feel like a dinosaur saying that.

    An aside: When I was at university I joined the astronomical society and one chilly night made it over to a dark vegetal location where the observatory was. We were invited to observe some galaxy cluster and my head was brimming with splendiferous visions. In fact, when I got my chance at the eyepiece, what it looked like was a slight smudge on the lens. That killed the excitement somewhat! :)
