Beautiful Skies

While standing on the station platform tonight, on my way home, I got some great views of Jupiter, Saturn and a whole host of stars at dusk. Jupiter is low in the south east and I can see it over the neighbouring houses when I look out my back door. It is the first time it has been so clear for what seems like quite a while. Actually it has been clear a couple of times in the past two weeks but it looks like the seeing may be better tonight.

As the undergraduates are away for Easter/NAM, I'm hoping that I can go and play with the 10 inch Meade on the roof. The only trouble is that I need someone else to go with me for Health and Safety reasons. Hopefully I can convince Chris to spend the night out in the cold.
