    Although the maximum of the shower is the 12-14th you should still see some for the rest of the month- TBH if you are outside long enough at any time of the year you will see several each night

    Sorry Claire - I have gotten so used to calling it Ursa Major in the last year that I kind of forgot that most people in the UK call it the plough as opposed to the big dipper

    Hold tight you are being flown over to the new Hobbies A-Z home :D









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
