Northern Hemisphere Rainy Season

Unread post by liteboxbarry » Thu Nov 09, 2017 3:42 pm

I left New England as the late October storm began, landing in Honolulu just after a major rain tapered off. The ocean around Molokai was stained with red dirt when we flew over. The little valley where I live on Oahu has seen rain on all but a couple days since my return. Our "Observe The Moon" night was clouded out, as was my attempt at Sidewalk Astronomy in Waikiki. I skipped a school star party in Central Oahu on a rainy day, but those who went said that they got a window on the universe at the right time and could run their scopes for a very grateful group. November is bad for stars and good for the water table... but there are exceptions. I wish us all unseasonable luck with Saturday night's clouds. Without the Moon, Jupiter or Saturn... there is still a universe full of things to find and savor.

I'm not so much worried about rain as I am the bitter cold. Local forecast calls for teens and low 20s in the overnight hours the next couple of nights.
