It was absolutely freezing! Those of you who know me will know it must have been cold for me to think it was freezing. Beautiful night, but freezing.
Talk about not seeing the wood for the trees. The photos I took had loads of detail, so much I found it hard to recognise the constellations I did know on them. Did they have shooting stars, no they didn't, despite me seeing many while the camera was working. I'm just assuming that may be a max of 1 second of shooting star over a 30 second exposure just hasn't shown up. The blighters are still out there whizzing about and teasing me!
I know the displays are supposed to peak at around midnight but I'm planning on being happy snoring long before then!
I took a few other photos for fun though...
There's a lunar eclipse on the 21st December at 08:16, first for 3 years so these guys say
What I really want to see are the mirrie dancers though...
