    Moon looks amazing. This is just from the window of my flat with my shitty phone camera. It's still in the east I'll be able to see it better as it moves west!

    Have Wifi and a couple of laptops/notebooks but too stingy to have more than a payg phone with internet switched off.

    Thanks to your prompting, I've had some great views of the moon rising in the east and some interesting views of what I guess is Venus(??) highish to the west. Lit the firebowl for the first time this year and took out the Shackleton Whisky.

    I have a 20-50x telescope (for birding) but haven't set up the camera so just have some snaps and digiscope pics (hopefully). I'll share some pics tomorrow but it sounds like, in the coming days I'll have another chance at the comet - which is falling apart before our eyes.

    Going out to enjoy the rest of the evening.

    Enjoy mate.

    Is your phone a smart phone that can download apps? If so, it doesn't matter if it's pay as you go if you have wifi.

    The only other way is to google constellations and find lynx yourself. It's not far from the big dipper, which is in Ursa Major.

    The reason I struggled with it was cos I watched it in the bath and the shower head starting contorting and curving whilst washing, bloody hate flannels. wretching across me lungs. When I turned the water off, dropped me iPad and got flung - wall wanker

    The last time I craved attention it was printed on an e in bromley

    Let us pray.

    Never fear some cum in your ear, it could help your eyes and loosen your rear.

    Not for insertion but merely a blockage, it's even ok for a floppy to dockage.

    Shake it once, shake it twice, those with a foreskin can shake it thrice.

    A drop from the glory, a shot of DNA, if you're terminal it'll go away.

    The moral of the story is to do your research, enough to banish and not need a church.

    If you're a solid and do it right - you'll do it once and it's out of sight.

    The prayer I've done and it's now all over, I've had my way, like a left handed lover.

    My prayer is answered, and I'm free to go, your dick is now bending like a river does flow.

    Keep it legal, never resent, have a go at a solid and your dick ends up bent...

    If we were to ever fully colonise Mars, humans would likely be unable to return to Earth due to the lower gravity there. Also, due to the increases of radiation on the planet, humanity would evolve there much quicker, one theory is that they would also develop orange skin, as this seems to be the most resistant to radiation. They'd also be much smaller and weaker than Earthlings. This could cause issues if Martian skulls also shrank along with the rest of their skeletal systems, as it could impact on the brain, neatively affecting martian lifespans.

    The satellite convoy was brilliant. Unfortunately I missed it real time but the videos looked amazing.

    Out tonight to try and see some of this meteor shower.

    If you're sitting in the garden tonight having a beer (or just have nowt to do at that time) Space X is launching tonight and apparently we can see it in the UK around 15 minutes after it launches, going West to East, still with boosters attached. Launch is set for 21.33 uk time.
