I'll try and get too, it all depends on astro dog, this week he's been a bit quite and off colour  - yes, I know he's white. ;) :wub:

Hello Derek.

 

As far as I'm aware there is a meeting at Long Eaton School on Wed 16th Dec, I think it's the annual quiz. And if clouds permit a Geminids watch at Belper on Sun 13th Dec.

Thank you Mick and Mike. Wed is my last day at work  due to being made redundant after over 39 yrs working.  I may not feel so good that night. But i may decide to come - i originally said i would  - but didn't  know what was about to happen. I may need some cheering up. 

I cant seem to edit the first message - some strange tablet quirks?

Derek,

 

Sorry to hear that! You will of course be more than welcome. There will be mince pies on offer and the quiz is never dull!

Sorry  that you are being made redundant Derek, thirty nine years is some loyalty as well.

 

I'll be going, so yes, come along and have a chat mate, I'll even get you a tea in. :)

I'm afraid the weathers not going to co-operate come Sunday night.

Weatherpro on ios is showing 100% cloud cover between now and about Tuesday.

Its usually pretty accurate.

 

Looks like being a non event. I live in hope though.......:telescope:

Do we assume that tonights meet is cancelled then.....?

 

Indefinite cloud for the UK now forecast till Wednesday night / Thursday.

 

But yesterday evening looked the same too. 

We were at a party till around 23:00hrs last night, and when we left it had cleared up !

Can't see the same happening tonight though ?

 

Whats the general feeling ?
