Well I'm a new member and am very interested in astronomy!

I am 14 years old, have my own Car Valeting service, enjoy working on cars, fixing computers etc...

I have just found out that the "star" I have been seeing for the past few months in the Western sky is the planet Venus! I find that very amazing.

I am currently reading "Parallel Worlds" by Michio Kaku and think he is a great physicist and explains facts fantastically in his book!

That's about it, bye!

P.S. Is there any other planets visable in the sky I could look out for ? I'm in Scotland by the way.

Jupiter - its the brightest object in the sky at the moment.

You could also download Stellarium for your PC - its a free bit of software that runs a kin of planetarium on the PC. Easy to use and will allow you to identify objects your seeing.

ANyway - welcome to the forum and wishing you clear skies :D

Hi and welcome to the forum. :D

Glad to hear that you are creating a successful business for yourself - will look out for you on Dragons Den when you decide to trade in 10% equity in exchange for a really large telescope! :eek::D

Clear skies
