    Hey I agree! We want more! and I'm not humouring you :tongue0011-1: ! I spent ages last month looking up at something I was pretty sure was what you were pointing at only to find I'm pretty sure it was a light on top of a tv tower :lol:

    If there aren't any events in a month I'll do something on the moon or the constellations to look for if that sort of thing will appeal

    Hey Chris, if I stand outside my front door on a clear night I can see Orion. :207:

    And that's as far as my constellation knowledge goes so I'd be interested in learning what else I can see. :D

    Well you could at least be impressed that I know a proper constellation. :dozey:

    When I was in my 20s I did a lot of camping with a big group of friends and on a clear summer's night we would all lay out in the field and just stare upwards and everywhere we looked eventually a star would come into focus. It was awesome.

    You will have to bring the boy over later in the year when it gets dark early and Saturn pops up again - he will love that
