I'm in Blackpool and as I look up, from my garden, above the tram tracks all I can see is Jupiter and Venus; but, if I cross over to the prom the stars appear! 50 yards that's all. Last night I caight sight of Plieades in my 10x50s. Very nice. I looked for Andromeda but failed. I'll have to get a planisphere.

Looking forward to the cloud disappearing.

Bad isn't it?

I've tried looking for Andromeda but it disappears behind the houses! Have to get out in to the open one time!
