Up at 5.30BST as usual. Peeped outside to see in the SE Sirius twinkling in the pink glow of dawn. Winter woollies will soon be needed :)

Skywatchers, like thee and me, really do follow the seasons, with the changes of positions on the constellations, height of the Sun, monthly phases of the Moon , and the seasonal changes in the positions of the various lunar phases, the solstices and equinoxes, etc. In a few days, on the 23rd September 07h 51m 28s, the Autumn Equinox will be at hand. Time does seem to just slip through one's fingers as one gets older! Regards maf.

Tempus fugit indeed Mike. The scientific explanation for this is that older people have a bigger memory store than younger people, so we spend more time inside our heads sifting through memories than they do with their fewer memories.
Then, we come out of our memory, look at the clock, and wonder why the time has passed so quickly :D .

This morning around 5pm BST, had a good view low in the southeast and through the bedroom window of "The Head of Hydra", fitting nicely in the fov of the 8x36 binocular. Regards maf
