Gorgeous waning gibbous moon this morning - such a golden colour!
Conditions weren't ideal, steady breeze, high level thin cloud too - but we were delighted to get a view through the telescope!

An epic pre dawn sky - Noctilucent Cloud over Bromsgrove!

Thrilled to again capture Noctilucent Clouds over our hometown skyline, night clouds or NLC are tenuous cloud-like phenomena that are the "ragged edge" of a much brighter and pervasive polar cloud layer called polar mesospheric clouds in the upper atmosphere, visible in a deep twilight.

Transit of Mercury!

Today, May 9th, Mercury passes directly between the Earth and our nearest star the Sun. The inky black form of the innermost planet will glide across the solar disk for more than 7 hrs (12:12-19:42 BST)

Blue sky Moon!

We both love seeing the Moon during the daytime - if you have clear skies - all you need do is just look up!

Our Nearest Star 16/4/2016

So thrilled to photograph the Sun in white light today! Conditions weren't ideal - fast moving cloud, steady breeze too - but we had a couple of awesome clear patches and it was fab to get a closer view of the monster Sunspot AR 2529 - a giant more than three times wider than Earth!

Conjunction of Jupiter and Waxing Moon!

Thrilled to spend sometime under the stars in the early hours of this morning ;0) We watched these two bright beauties climb across the sky!
