What a lovely night at last....! :)

Recommended Posts

Last night was the clearest night I've seen this year. Amazing how many stars I could see with the naked eye.

I could also see the MilkyWay from the very well lit large town that I live in, which says an awful lot! .. I've not seen the MilkyWay from here since I was young (many years ago).

Yes, I saw the Milky Way from my back garden, and that's rare for me too! Its looking great again tonight, but after a 4am and then a 3am I'm not sure my body can cope with another late night!!

It's me. Seriously, I think I'm some kind of cloud attractor. Fair warning: I'm back in the UK on Saturday so expect cloud and rain from Friday night...http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/156064-jet-stream-heading-north-again-yipieeeee/

Neighbours spoilt things for me tonight, lights on and blinds right open in all three rear-facing windows, lit up the garden like a christmas tree.

I wimped out and went to bed..... my excuse is that I'd been for a walk with a friend yesterday and it was very hot and I think I got a bit de-hydrated, which brought on the headache. But I feel better now. We're off to the Millenium Stadium for the Olympic Football this afternoon, two matches, so should be home around 10:00. Just in time for .... :grin:

It wasn't that great in Cardiff last night anyway Helen.

Not much in the way of clouds, but very hazy. Even at 1am I couldn't see more than a few stars.

Looks like better seeing tonight if you can find the gaps in the clouds.

The forecast says tomorrow night will be rubbish and Friday good :)
