An enjoyable 90 min in a muddy field staring upwards waiting for sky to clear.  It did not.  At least I knew where to look, at the intermittent clear patches.  This has been extremely cropped.

Steve, good try. It cleared in Chelmsford between around 23:00 and 02:30 and my video cameras picked up quite a few Quads while I was asleep in bed. Much more comfortable than a muddy field but not as much fun...
