I’m constantly bummed out by clouds on days of interesting meteorological phenomenon. I only manage to get a really good one about every 5 years. I’ve seen a few meteor showers, a few lunar eclipses, the aurora borealis, a partial solar eclipse and a comet. That’s not too bad considering the amount of effort I usually put into such things is walking out onto the front step and saying “Nope, clouds.”

Today’s Maximumble has a peculiar predicament.
