Bonjour from Lyon

Recommended Posts

Bonjour everybody,

I live 10 km east of Lyon and I'm sixty but still mad enough to have built an obsy in the yard last year. We had max. 3 clear nights here since it was finished last october. Nevermind, they say astronomy requires a lot of patience...

Bonsoir!

A warm welcome.

Sorry to hear that you are stuck under the same persistent cloud blanket as some of us in more Northern climes.

Thank you all for your welcome messages. Yes Jesper, 69 stands for Lyon area post code, we are neighbours it seems...

Hi JL and welcome to SGL :) We had a nice clear spot for once last night, after all that snow, but we also had a very bright Moon. We now have nice change for the week of rain and gales :mad: enjoy your Astronomy as and when you are able :)

John.

Greetings! We were just discussing the night skies over that part of France last night - my wife's "marraine" lives at Grandris (NW of Lyon) and we watched the Perseid meteor shower there last August. Lovely dark skies.

Welcome aboard from me too. Seems we are all suffering from cabin fever at the moment due to this awful weather.

Gale force wind and rain here at the moment

Regards :clouds2::crybaby2:
