    I agree with the first part.  But it could not have been a cloud or other
    atmospheric disturbance (as far as a I know).  I couldn't see anything
    moving in the sky (and many stars and the Moon were visible at the time).
     Orion was largely invisible, but two of its four bright stars were
    visible - 30 minutes.  If clouds were to blame, then shouldn't the other
    two stars of Orion have dimmed, and/or reveal other stars?  If it was
    clouds, then they must have been frozen in time for 30+ minutes.
    
    If anyone has seen the constellation Orion in the last 100 hours, please
    e-mail me privately.
    
    I haven't had a clear night since that mysterious night.
    
    Thank you.
