Re: An Astronomical Treat

A peek at the dark side of the Moon, eh, Kevin? Pink Floyd got it wrong! There is no 'Dark Side of the Moon'' it's the ''Far Side of the Moon'. The Moon is tidally locked to the Earth, meaning that the same face is always seen. That doesn't mean that the other side never sees sunlight. https://www....

Re: An Astronomical Treat

Another treat tonight (or more correctly yesterday) at around 19:45 GMT. A great view tonight of the crescent Moon, with Venus just below it. The remainder of the disc of the Moon is just visible as a phenomena known as 'earthshine'. This is sunlight reflected off the Earth, back onto the Moon and t...

Re: Birmingham to Breast

Great shots, Ben. However, from the thousands of times I've been (it was my local airport when I was growing up and until lockdown, I went back there regularly), the buildings look nothing like Birmingham Airport (BHX/EGBB). Are they generic Microsoft Flight Simulator buildings? The 'climb out' shot...

Re: Seeing stars.

When I read the title, I thought that you were talking about astronomy. I know of most of the names that you mention and Patricia Hodge and Lulu were stunningly beautiful in their younger years.The two that I didn't know, were Diane Keaton (had to 'Google who she is) and Lawrence Chaney (no way I'm ...

Re: An Astronomical Treat

Hi Kevin, Glad that you have good weather for skywatching ;) Cheers Mike :thumbsup:, good but cold, around freezing. You wouldn't want to be out for long, without a good coat and a thermos flask of hot tea or soup. Hopefully its clear tonight and I’ll try and get a look. Thanks for the tip Kevin 👍 ...

Re: An Astronomical Treat

Just back from my walk to the village shop and the night sky is incredible. Absolutely crystal clear. Over the last few months, I've watched the planet Jupiter as it has traversed from the East to the West. It has been the brightest object in the night sky, after the Moon.

Re: Duxford Mystery Plane Exhibit

Great photos, Paul. Thanks for sharing. That's a lot of Hurricanes in one photo. Ive seen 16 Spitfires in the air together at the same location, but I don't think I've ever seen that many Hurricanes.

Hi Kevin,
i wonder if they are actually part of the Draken training program (formerly FRA)?
I believe so, Jetphotos lists them as 'Draken Europe'.
