If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.


I saw the Comet!

Weather today is dreadful, wind and rain, but yesterday was totally clear and I saw comet McNaught.

17:10 in central Kent, bearing about SE, in the orange glow above the horizon. Tail subtending about 1/4 of the full moon, leaning slightly to the right and tighter toward the horizon. Could have been a cloud but it looked cometty to me. I've never seen a proper tail before.

As soon as I saw it I raced home to show the less mad son, but it had set by the time I got there.
