    I didn't. It was clear, but
    I was stuck in an important meeting.
    Annoying, as it was a clear sky, too.

    Update for Friday

    All you need to do is go outside. Face the South and look up at an angle of about 45 degrees, that is half way between the horizon and directly overhead. Do this around 7:44pm. You will see a slow moving bright white light travel across the sky from a South West direction to an Easterly direction. It should take about 4 minutes to cross the sky

    7:44pm tonight!!!!!

    October 7: Moon and Mars


    Look for Mars to the lower left of the Moon this evening. The planet looks like a bright orange star. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun, which makes it the next outward from Earth.

    It is a bit of an average sighting tonight.....

    Okay, for the next couple of nights...

    October 10: Pleiades


    The Pleiades climbs into view by 9 or 10 p.m. and sails high overhead during the night. The star cluster looks like a tiny dipper outlined by six moderately bright stars, and covers about as much area of sky as a full Moon.



    October 11: Moving Group


    Five stars of the Big Dipper are members of the Ursa Major Moving Group, a collection of stars that were born together and that move through space together. The group appears to include stars in other constellations, including Orion, Aquarius, and Draco.


    I really recommend downloading Stellarium, for anybody that's interested. You don't have to go outside, but you really should!

    And with that, I looked up, just as it went by my velux

    Didn't even have to step outside
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    At that angle I will once again see it from the window

    I shall stand on a step and stick my head through to watch it

    Last night we had cloud so only saw it for around 30 seconds

    October 12: Celestial Sea


    A wide swath of the southern sky is known as the Celestial Sea — a series of constellations associated with water. All of them were created and named millennia ago, at a time when their appearance in the night sky heralded a rainy time of year.



    October 13: Uranus at Opposition


    The giant planet Uranus is at opposition. It lines up opposite the Sun, so it rises at sunset and is in view all night, in the constellation Pisces. The solar system’s seventh planet is so faint, though, that you need binoculars to pick it out.



    October 14: Uranus at Opposition II


    Uranus is putting in its best showing of the year. The giant planet lines up opposite the Sun, so it rises at sunset and is in view all night. Tonight, it’s not far to the lower left of the Moon. You need binoculars or a telescope to see it.



    October 15: Hunter’s Moon


    It’s pretty easy to hunt up the Moon tonight. It’s full, so it rises around sunset and is in view all night long. And as the first full Moon after the Harvest Moon, it’s known as the Hunter’s Moon.


    For the next few nights viewing.


    Yes I'll be able to see Uranus. I've since grown out of such jesting. Or have I?! F'nar!
