Funny old thing the weather, my daughters birthday is in April and it has snowed on it more than once, and the Epsom Derby in June had snow once :eek: many years ago before climate change, there was a café on Epsom Downs with a B&W photograph recording the event on the wall.

Brilliant report ... echoed i'm sure throughout the astronomy community . Thinking about it all , its probably why so many people in our country are mad for astronomy . Not only do we contend with light pollution , our time spent outside (due to inclement weather ) is so short . Therefore we tend to seize every opportunity we can to observe the night sky. When i read reports like yours Ally , it doubles my enthusiasm for this fantastic hobby.

I don't have all the lingo/jargon and have difficulty explaining myself most of the time but it's nice to know my basic reports are appreciated. Your reply has really made me smile. Thank you :)
