    Here's some cloudy/rainy night reading material.  They are 
    reports of mostly naked-eye obs of NOSS 2-_ triangles just 
    in July and August 2003.  Some are very good.  I think none 
    of the observers knew what the objects were, but some did 
    think that they were satellites.  The site's director is 
    aware of NOSS triangles and now usually appends a note 
    about them.  Some of the folks were actually looking for
    satellites but still found these very surprising.

    That site from time to time has lots of reports of 
    spectacular reentries and launches, plus other bright
    satellites (especially Space Shuttle passes).
    
    Spaceweather.com put up a nice photo of the SciSat Pegasus 
    launch contrail:

    Now I think it's stopped raining finally.
