    Morning all,

     

    Very nippy on my walk to work this morning from Waterloo East Stn - so much so that I am going to pop out shopping tonight to get myself a cardie to wear in the mornings.

     

    This of course guarentees a late summer heat wave for the rest of August Posted Image

     

    Lovely reading the reports last night - I must confess I forgot all about the meteor display and was sound asleep by 11pm!

     

    Have a lovely day everyone Posted Image

    Hmm - I rather hijacked the interesting meteor discussion with my electric aquatic exploitsPosted Image Posted Image By the time I was reading about it it was too late to look anywayPosted Image I'm sure that some years back we had a solar eclipse (or something similar?) almost exactly this time in August during the day? I seem to remember people at work stopping what they were doing to pay attention to it.

     

    Coincidence I guess rather than any astronomical/solar festival ritual...Posted Image

    responding to coast's post in the previous thread. I was only joking. I would have done some star watching last night, but after  9 hour round trip to Didcot for a job interview and getting back at half 10, all I wanted to do was sleep.

    Doing it all again on Thursday.

    Morning all

     

    Just been finishing off the franken-puter, it is made up of various bits I had stored in boxes, actual test comes late once I have sorted the power connection (never realised till today there is no power socket near it).

     

     

    Been a cooler and fresher day here, was cool last night when I was out firework spotting too, only just reached 19.2oC in the shed, must be the coolest for the time of day I have seen it in a few weeks.  Still it remains dry thus far but quite cloudy.

    Afternoon each. Well, Ippy must have a meteor shield because I didn't see a single one last night. Never mind.....I'll wait for the Ison appearance later this year.

    But we did have some lovely, stormy brooding dark skies at sun set;

    Hope you're all having a good day.

    Afternoon all,

     

    From a rather cloudy Croydon, with a few sunny spells at times.

     

    Moving on to tonight and any prolonged clear spells will likely result in the formation of patches of Patrick Moores', which could thicken and become very excited, if clear spells persist. Areas most prone seem to be parts of E.Anglia, Bromley, W.London and parts of Sussex but any cloud formation will quickly disperse said patches of P.Ms and send them sulking off to bed, disappointed.

     

    Me, I'm off to Greenwich Observatory! Posted Image

     

    Happy meteor shower hunting. 

     

    Tom.

    Well its so quiet in here, that I've come to the conclusion that you're all suffering from comet blindness and have issued a severe warning for dangerous man-eating plants, in our region.

    Stay safe,

    Tom.

    The rain has missed me to the south by like a mile or two. Overall though this summer has been pleasantly surprising! Except that the storms seem to allude this area.

    The meteor shower last night was mostly boring. Around 11pm we saw a bright orange shooting star with the ISS moving past but after that, it was completely boring. Me and my dad sat outside for about half an hour, we counted about 5.

    The horrible conditions I reported earlier only lasted an hour or so then gave way to clearing skies and a sunny end to the evening.

     

    There's still a fair bit of cloud around though so I doubt I will bother with another Persied watch tonight. Did anyone manage to see anything on the Slooh.com live link from the Canary Isles last night ? I checked it a few times and didn't see a thing.

    Evening folks.

     

    Been a fairly nondescript type day here (weatherwise) too. So nowt to report on that score really!

     

    Nice clearance in the north and north-west sky at the moment. Hope it moves in and stays this evening, as we have two more ISS passes tonight, and another display of the Perseids. Not sure my still sore neck will allow me to look up for almost an hour again tonight though!

     

     

    I'm sure that some years back we had a solar eclipse (or something similar?) almost exactly this time in August during the day? I seem to remember people at work stopping what they were doing to pay attention to it.

     

    Yep, I remember it well. It was at 11am on 11th August 1999. I was working in the Docklands at the time, and it had been cloudy all morning. Then, just before 11, a break in the clouds moved in.....as we were heading outside. And the clearance stayed for the duration of the eclipse. Amazingly!
