Thanks everyone... I love those days and I hate those days. Since its been a very dry couple years, I'm sure I'll have another opportunity at this.
@ Jason: I was looking at Spaceweather.com and someone, a hundred miles up the road, shot a similar shot. I missed the opportunity to get the scope connected, but was a little worried about the conditions and the lack of any protection over the optics. Next time, I'll do a little planning and shoot from the back seat, out the rear hatch. That should offer some protection.
@ Derek: Naw, Mom never told me that. She knew that's exactly what I would do... "Little Eric, don't stick things into the plug socket" Guess that's why I've always liked Lightning.
