Re: Any astronomy buffs about tongiht (29thAug) ?

Because its very easy to do in Stellarium; It's quite interesting to switch between your local UK daytime view, and switch to say Invercargill New Zealand from the impressively comprehensive location list in Stellarium  or Punta Arenas at the southern tip of south America or click the arrow on points even further south if you wish.
See some sights you can never see from the UK. I can confirm the the Southern Cross (Crux Australis, the constellation shown in both Australian and NZ national flags) and the southern parts of the Milky Way on a dark moonless night are a magnificent sight.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
