This morning a series of thunderstorms started rolling through the area, starting around 03:30 or so. We had many close by lightning strikes and at least two power outages. One was accompanied by a loud noise somewhere in the house and that knocked out the network to the observatory. Another kinda of browned out over a few seconds, went out and then slowly came back up again. Cool.

But this is about last night, before the storm when we still had clear skies.
