Buck Moon washout!

It's ironic that a day of clear blue skies was followed by increasing cloud as the Sun set last night. This precluded any chance of photographing the hyped 'Buck Moon': there was a dense cloud belt across the southern horizon all night. The 2nd and 3rd photos show the clouds gathering over Arcturus and Vega. I did manage hazy images of the International Space Station: it was so bright (nearly magnitude -4) that it was visible even through a thin cloud layer.  (You may need to click on the images to enlarge them)
