Stargazing cancelled. Tonight’s stargazing (Saturday 7th December) has been cancelled due to a poor weather outlook. We’ll try again next year.

Wow! What an interesting talk last night from Prof Dan Tovey.
An incredible insight into the science going on in the large hadron collider.
My guess is my dog might be to blame for the dark matter.
Sorry about that.

Had my rocks out for @Sheffield_Astro Society tonight.
Their beginners meeting was about ‘Comets, Asteroids and Meteors’, so it just made sense! ☄️

Thanks for the invite, @andrewgilhooley 🙂
