Transparency variable with frequent low clouds (cloud-5.0mag.)
Wind SW (5-10mph.) Moderate dew.

Observation comments: Some periods of good seeing allowed some detail to be noted, but rapidly
increasing low clouds caused observing to be abandoned. The SSTB appeared dark, noticabley more so
toward the f.limb. A thin streak of STB material was seen during steady periods. The SEB appeared
prominently spilt by a bright SEBZ. a dark streak was present across the zone toward the p.limb. The
EZ appeared bright, with no detail visible. The NEBs showed two faint plateau features. The NEB appeared
very prominent, with a possible dark barge close to the CM. NTB appeared dark also.
Here is an observation from this morning. I just managed to complete the observation as the clouds arrived.
