    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

    Have just realised that because we are off to Greece at the weekend we get to see this as a full Lunar Eclipse - the boy is very happy - means I will be without my scope but I will do my best to photograph it for you
