......You permanently keep duck tape over your interior car boot light.

......You stand in a muddy field, Kielder, until 4 O'clock in the morning

......People you met the night before, you do not recognise in the light

That's not that hard, a piece of sea-weed hung by the back door will do the trick.

....when you spend less time following the plot of a Sci-Fi film but instead keep focusing on the star filled backdrop to see if you can recognize any of the constellations, only to conclude to the other half who IS following the story that the background is fake! :grin: :grin:

You know you're an astronomer when you get angry at people that forget the 13th zodiac constellation, Ophiuchus.

You know you are an astronomer when you remove a book on astrology from the astronomy section of waterstones holding it at arms length with a look of utter disgust on your face

(Bath branch I shall be back next week to check you haven't put it back, you have been warned)

You know you're an astronomer when you can say you speak Arabic and know the Greek alphabet better than you do the English alphabet
