I have a similar impression from my remote telescopic observations. I take short 
snapshots only (3 images spaced 30 seconds in oen night) but it is clearly 
different in brightness during different sessions. Sometimes it is bright, 
sometimes faint (like yesterday), sometimes invisible (even with the 61-cm 
telescope), like 27 May.
