Throughout my life, I have experienced some strange happenings.  The attached PDF is a revision of a revision of a real event that happened to me.  I can even do the accent of the chap on the ground.  I laugh now.  I was not laughing that day for a while.  I do not know what happened afterwards, or if Steve lost his licence.  I got fired and told to go back to college, as I was wasted in this job.  I did as I was told!

The Sky at Night - November 2009

This episode of the Sky at Night was dedicated to the LCROSS lunar impact ( event on the 16th October, and was broadcast in November 2009. I was asked to come along and setup my scope at the seaside to try and capture the impact, unfortunately, cloud prevented us from seeing anything. The good news was that no-one else did either, as the impact was not visible from Earth!


The Sky at Night - January 2010

This episode was filmed in December 2009. I was asked to come along and bring some imager friends, so I invited Neil Richardson, Stephen Green and Iain Melville. I also took Emily along as well.  We had a great time filming, and also got some imaging in as well. Iain taught Emily how to do Star Trails with my Canon 350D, and caught some beauties.  More of her work here: Emily's Star Trails
