Just give you all an update on my new year's resolution...

I got a new phone a couple of months ago one of these new fangled smart phones, so I've downloaded  the google star map , makes things so much more easier, which is a good thing as I don't think we've had a clear night sky for ages.

Means I can now identify new constellations...just need to be able to see them in the sky now!

Have you been watching the moon this week- gorgeous, huge and orange as it rises.

No, I can't see it until it is high in the sky.  It is good to see it and not clouds though.

I'll try that again!

I can't see the moon but I can see its light through the dramatic clouds.

I'll try that again!

Brilliant Seth, thank you!  Here is a link to one of the sequences, loved the Aurora Borealis.

I'll try that again!

Hmm, didn't do too well with my new year resolution last year, did I?

im sure you've all head on the news over the past few days that we may be able to see the aurora borealis tonight, due to a number of factors, I shall be looking, apparently any time from 8pm. Fingers crossed

wave  I was driving back from a meeting about 9pm tonight and I stopped the car up the hill from me where there is a great expanse of sky.   Unfortunately it was so cloudy nothing could be seen at all.  I shall have another look before I go to bed and hope the sky has cleared.  Hope you have better luck  Janet!

There are too many lights here, we can see Orion and some other constellations but the intensity of star light is, sadly, lacking nowadays.  I long to go back to a farmhouse in France where there was total darkness, the sky was lit with stars that I had not seen since my childhood.

I'll try that again!

Didn't see anything, but there was the most beautiful sun rise the next day, must have been due to the sun activity.
