Monday night was a fabulous night for watching the sky. The large half-moon set around midnight and the air was crystal clear. Sat outside with the binoculars looking up (and into the past!) until I was dizzy! Scout isn't too interested in stars, so she was snuffling about in the bracken, presumable chasing little night creatures.
We were up before dawn today, so we trotted off over Roach End and watched the sun rise over the moors around Three Shires Head - believe it or not, there were three amateur photographers there already at 05:10 am!!
