    comets galore tonight

    Yep. Haleys' comet is still chucking out crap .....just for our pleasure tonight. Around 20 shooting stars an hour. (To my north to north east skies) around midnight throughout the night to nearly dawn..... the lounge chairs and blankets and insect repellent are all layed out in the paddock.
    Fingers crossed for clear skies. Actually , not sure if there's a moon tonight.

    And its a world wide thing! Ill wait for you guys to report on your display. Its going to be a goody.

    Oh and just a heads up! ...there's a chinese space lab out of control and its about to re enter earths atmosphere between now and next April.....thats exciting!.....except for the person it falls on i suppose.

    We were overcast all night, and missed all the light shows. Shame. We might go up into the mountains this weekend. There are some passes up there where the night skies are glorious.

    I'll take my recliner out in a couple of hours, it's only quarter past nine so far. I shall report back.

    I'll try again tonight. Last night we had much needed rain that should help a bit with the fires.

    Bugger! Thats a shame. Im lucky that way, no city lights. Spots quite jealous of my two nebulisus brilliantly exposed at night.
    And im trying to remember the old farmer rhyme for when the milky way swings round.....something to do with drought or something.

    I was told once that smoke particles in the atmosphere makes any celestial activity look quite pretty. Ya never know.

    While the smoke has interfered with celestial viewing it has made for some incredible sunsets.
