Starry starry night

aside

Since 9pm this evening I've been popping outside to the drive - the garden is too sheltered by trees. Tonight's the night I was told and everybody should look skywards between 9pm and 3am. It took me a while to adjust my eyes to the sky but when they focussed there were myriads of beautiful stars and then just as my neck was giving out I saw it right above my head: a shooting star - just the one, but it made me gasp out loud.
I want to put a mattress on the ground and lie there till 3am but there are bats and cats and crawlies - so I'll be content with my moment. Hope you're all watching! Nightie night!

Oberon: they are scattered through out the blog. You have to scroll back I'm afraid.

I would LOVE to see a shooting star, too, Pat...That had to be breath taking...!
I have guesrs coming over so maybe after we have our "Concert" we can all go out and look to the skies!

Naomi: i hope you were lucky but it has to be dark and i fear you may have too much light from the city?

Here light pollution wasn't a problem, but cloud cover was. We have had thick cloud and heavy rain showers for the last three days so I didn't even bother to go out and look. But I am glad you saw at least one.
