I had grand plans for today's TITC. My husband is into astronomy (not to be confused
with astrology) and for Christmas got an impressive beast of a telescope. I was
thinking of taking a picture of it in shilouette against the twilight sky. But when I got home
from work I discovered that a local farmer (not the owner of the sheep that I have been
stalking from time to time) had spread slurry on fields close to our house so I didn't
fancy venturing outdoors more than was absolutely essential.
So here's a shot of a planisphere instead which can be used to track the position
of the stars throughout the year.
We are lucky that there is little light pollution where we live so we enjoy great
views of the sky at night. Twice we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights-
a totally unforgettable sight.
