On a ship that sailed the moon
This is space. It's sometimes called the final frontier. (Except that of course you can't have a *final* frontier, because there'd be nothing for it to be a frontier *to*, but as frontiers go, it's pretty penultimate...) Terry Pratchett


Tonight, there will be a very pretty sky if the clouds stay away.MWNN has just called me to see the Moon and Venus. They are at their closest for years and both are already visible as the sun is setting. Venus and the moon will be visible beside each other from around sunset for about three hours.


Also on view will be Comet Lulin which appears in binoculars to have two tails. It will be close to the planet Saturn in the eastern sky.

Thanks for the heads-up! It's overcast here right now, but I'll hope for it to clear up by evening.

The clouds rolled in after the initial glimpse at sunset. Hopefully there will be photos from where the skies stayed clear.

Yup, our local weatherman has been talking about Comet Lulin for an entire week.

Have you seen it?

No, you can't see it in the City - you have to go out into the country to view it. Plus, we've had clouds every night.

I've just had a look outside and we have a lot of cloud cover at the moment, so no moon, stars or Venus.

After the initial glimpse at sunset, we lost the clear sky too :(

I'm expecting some way cool photos from this.

Do you have a favourite site for photos? The clouds thickened here after sunset.
