Even with half the tarp up I would get a good view of the heavens.
I've woken to sprinkles several times. One night in October, a half day south of Damascus, I went to sleep with stars in the tree branches overhead. I woke to a bright moon several hours later. Then, toward morning, I woke with some raindrops on my face. It only took a moment to get the hammock covered and then about a minute to get the second half staked out.
