Canopus - my old friend

Recommended Posts

In Lanzarote for a week. First day, We’ve been travelling and I’m knackered. So bit of an early one. Got the bins on the balcony with a San Miguel. Low down but there it is, sparkling a bit in the haze but good to see you again Canopus after all these years, last time I saw you was when I was in the Gulf 22 years ago now. We’re growing older together, you and I.

Also, Formhalhaut Quite high up instead of hugging the horizon. Orion rising to my East on his side instead of low down to the south east like in the UK. Sky seems weird without Ursa Major but not circumpolar here and is below the northern horizon.

wonderful. I’m so tired though after a busy week at work and up at 4.30 this morning to travel here that I’m retiring now for the night. There’s always tomorrow hopefully !

Certainly more likely that it will yet again be clear than it would be from here!  Snow on the ground at present.    😀
