West Coast USA on 4/27/18 at 09:34 PST, taken from NOAA 18.

Looks like British Columbia is due for some rain, and Washington State and Oregon are getting some rain.

But California looks to be in for a nice day.

looking at google maps a bit more, it's clear that it's not actually Barca.
It's more southwest, around Tortosa.
Must have some serious rain down there...

New antenna position still looking good.Not convinced yet though.This pass could be over the gap between the houses. Time will tell.

Just missed the liftoff, had the bird come by an hour earlier it might have shown a trail. And I didnt see anything here.

Here is the view from NOAA 19 on 5/5/18 at 05:21 AM PDT, if you follow the red line down from my location marker it goes just to the East of Vandenberg AFB. (little bump of land before it hits the Islands off shore)
