    It was posted by me very much tongue in cheek. I can read and worked out for myself that 3 and-a-half million miles is is quite a safe distance :rolleyes

    Anyway, here's a rather erm 'cool' video talking about those 1.8 billion pixel images taken of Mars recently. Some terrific footage and if you haven't seen the proper pics yet I suggest you check them out. You can zoom right in and the detail is amazing.

    If you've got a spare 20 minutes (and who doesn't at the moment), then you could do worse than watch this lovely visual delight showing some of the wonders of our universe and is a tribute to the famous Hubble Deep Field photo which at the time was the furthest look into the universe. With all thats going on, this is very calming and makes you question our, at times, petty behaviour on this small spherical (@johnnyT ) jewel of a world. And the music is tremendous also.

    If you've been stuck in the house for a while with bored kids (or even without kids) get yourselves out tonight and have a butcher's at the moon.

    It's a supermoon and will appear much larger than usual since it is at it's closest to earth.

    Tonight is also known as a "super pink moon" due to the moon and Sun aligning (although it's not actually pink but that might tweak the interest in the kids) meaning its also a lot brighter.

    The best time to view it is at moonrise.

    'Super Pink Moon' rises tonight! Teach your kids about the biggest full moon of 2020 | Space

    Also download a sky guide app that will show you all the constellations, major stars, planets, galaxies and bodies if you are moon gazing too. Can spend hours at it even if the moon is full.

    Guys, if you have a telescope then start pointing it just north of the right hand side of constellation lynx. There with you will find a huge comet called Atlas. It's half the size of the sun as it has a huge dense atmosphere. It's travelling towards the sun and is currently visible with a pair of binoculars.

    Astronomers are predicting that it will become as bright as venus in the night sky with a tail visible to the naked eye. Don't miss out on seeing this. Comets this size don't come around very often!

    Thanks Shane. A bottle of wine was dampening my enthusiasm for moon watching tonight but I'm up for it again.

    Unfortunately, your directions to see the comet are as useful as a chocolate fireguard.

    Where is Lynx from the UK? N.S, W or E?

    I have an app called planets. it's free. You just open it up and point it to the sky. Shows you where all the planets and constellations are at any given time. I use that to find planets all the time.
