Found 12th Nov 2009
Positively tropical this morning ... 10ºC (and for those who CBA and DKH .. 50ºF) the roads were dry and idiot free.
Heading East here was a pinprick of light towards the raising sun, don't think it could be a star ... are there any HUKD stargazers who could shed any light (geddit) on this phenomenon?

Good Morning .
Dull and damp at Durham.



sorry I don't know anything about stars.

Install stellarium, it's a great planetarium program get it free at stellarium.org/

The star you can see is probably Venus, it should be approx 120 degrees from North and about 10 degrees above the horizon.

Venus is near the horizon but can be seen in dark skies, Mercury can be seen closer to the sun, but only near dawn, because otherwise the sun's light obscures it.

I had the joy of studying astronomy at Uni.... thank Keele for making it's students have a wide foundation of modules from other subjects! I also did Jazz and classical mythology..........for a Psych/English degree.........lol

Hello Mike What's your fascination with farenheit for??

Ive had a good day so far. My son is realllllllllllly peeved my new printer is a wireless one " I'm NOT having a wireless printer on the internet connection!!" I had the fun of pointing out who pays for his internet connection....lol I'm assuming it has something to do with slowing down hisMW2.......lol
