    After a period of nice and warm weather it changed this afternoon.
    It's clouded now, with a chance of rain.
    I've a backlog in reporting obs.
     
    This morning I saw 4 satellites. 1 earth, the moon and 3 sun sats,
    Saturn, Venus and Mercury. I first used my bino's to locate Mercury,
    but then it was easy naked eyed. Nice view next to Regulus. I've
    seen Mercury naked eyed before, but never so bright.
