Just our luck!

Oh great - the year's best metor show, aka Geminid Shower, is due tonight (or tomorrow morning, whichever side of the planet you consider it from). And for the first time in weeks it's cloudy!


My son and I have been spending some time star-gazing recently, using his little binoculars, and discovering some spectacular stuff. We have actually seen galaxies! And satellites, lots of satellites. Talking of which, here's a site that tracks in real-time what's above you and where it's headed. Just click on one of the many, many dots for info on what it is and a diagramme of it's orbit! Too cool.
