  1. looks like a beautiful clear evening here in S Wales tonight - haven't been out for ages and running out of excuses at the moment to be honest
  2. Fantastic Images Mick really enjoyed them
  3. Thanks Helen- interesting stuff :0)
  4. Its a frustrating hobby for sure Mike :0)
  5. Thanks for the replies folks- obviously some further research required on my part but yes Helen- Sci Fi was the first thing I thought - the chances of anything coming from - you know lol
  6. Was out the back garden tonight with the Bins after having a fire and saw something I've never seen before. Was looking pretty much due South then saw a satelite coming over, nothing unusual, then another and another - I counted about 10 in total all in a perfect line all following the same path. I watched this for a few minutes even tried to take a video but it was terrible quality so no use. Thats the first time I've seen anything like that - anyone else seen anything similar or have any explanations?
  7. Missed my chance tonight - 19th Jan was planning the first trip in ages to Blaenavon and got put off by the bbc weather forecast but so far has been a brilliant night - should have got out earlier and just gone for it
  8. Thanks Mike- I'm full of good intentions - like you said would be great to meet up again - the meets at Blaenavon were brilliant would be great if we could get some enthusiasm going for it again - fingers crossed I'll catch up soon
  9. Hi both - the S Wales group used to meet in the Fox Hunters car park above Blaenavon which is on the edge of the Beacons - it was a really friendly and informal meet. Having not been involved for the last few years I'm not sure whether its still happening but I'd keep your eyes open in the group forum and check it out regularly. We're just entering the beginning of the season for many of us so I'm sure things will pick up shortly - I'm determined to get back involved this year so hopefully will catch up later in the Autumn.
  10. I think after my Hiatus I need to start again with small steps Tony - I need you and Mike to show me which end of the tube to use again :0)
  11. Thanks Tony - I'd like to say I will join you there to rekick my astronomy career this year but I suspect my daughter will be moving from my house in October so it'll be all hands to the pump for a while but a return is on the horizon at last cheers Steve
  12. Where is Forest Fields guys - is it manageable for a nights observing travelling from South Wales?
  13. Had a great evening with my nephews in Newquay in Cardigan last week- sky was crystal clear, no moon - was really special even with my limited knowledge and bins only showing the boys about some of the showstoppers for a brief hour or so. Suprizing what you forget though so looking forward to getting back this year - Meziers reset for 2018 :0)
  14. Fond memories of my first two SW Star parties at Pencelli - have good intentions of rejoining the group again this year after a brief hiatus- 3 years I think - hopefully catch up with Tony, Mike and the meet some new faces in the Autumn - keep up the good work guys
  15. Happy Christmas all - been an odd couple of years for me personally but I fully intend getting back involved when I can - great to see Mike keeping everything going for the group in S Wales and best wishes to all for the New Year
