    No luck with the clouds this night. Seemed possible at T-20 min and T-10 min,
    but quickly worsened after that. I saw my reference stars in glimpses totalling
    less than 10 s.
    
    Tomorrow night looks promising in terms of weather and passes. A good portion of
    my first pass will be illuminated by the sun; the remaining two passes will be
    in shadow, but near perigee.
