Never doubted you Soupy..it did look rather impressive. First time I've seen aurora under the clouds!

Does anyone fancy giving me a bit of a hand on Friday 18th March from 1.00pm - 4.00pm with some public outreach at my daughters school? It's science week and I've been asked to do a bit of a stand. There will be other stands there. In the sports hall. I was thinking of taking my telescope. If anyone has any books or equipment the kidsmight find interesting that would be great also. It will just be some questions and answers with the kids on basic astronomy. I know Vicky Dews had maybe a couple of cool science tricks up her sleeve. So if anyone can help out that day without going out of their way that would be awsome.

thanks in advance ?

Hi Ryan 

I've had to swap to the morning shift on Friday meaning I finish around 1pm so will be a little later on when I get there

That's absolutely fine Damian! No problem mate. Do you know where the school is? If you like you can park your car at my house and walk over? Same for you Vicky.

Gain, I've only just seen that you posted the Moon globe lol. It is brilliant! Isabelle has enjoyed looking at it and identifying places on it the she imaged to other night. Thanks again for that mate.

 

and Happy st Paddys day to everyone ☘???

Happy st Patricks day to our Irish contingent 

This is the first year I have missed ST Paddy's in Benidorm for 7 years, my Grandad comes from Leinster and we used to go there when kids in the 1950's, (Ireland not Benidorm lol ), .
