Perhaps a little less fun than it might sound, but last night found me outside waiting to see if the clouds would break to allow a little stargaze.
Well, they didn't, and my attempt to see if my efforts at writing a guide to finding the Andromeda Galaxy from memory were hopeless or not, were thwarted.
Instead, now not having to worry about dark adapting my eyes, I took my mobile phone out and took some shots of the vegetation in my garden, to see if perhaps I could catch a sleepy silver-y moth on the ivy flowers or somesuch.
No such luck, although I did catch a sleeping harlequin ladybird on the crackly old honesty seed pods. But it is interesting to get a different view, albeit a rather washed out and overexposed one!
