24/365 The Whole of the Moon


Today we learned that no matter how much you want it, you can't make the sky go clear just by wishing. 

It was convenient for us to visit the Coats Observatory in Paisley, so we did. Only it was too cloudy for the telescopes to be working so we had to content ourselves with looking at the astronomical artifacts and information that packed the place. 

And on a starry night, we'll return.

  1. Hello, just discovered your blog from twitter. Some really lovely posts - love the short sweet style so much, as you can get so fed up with reading long laborious posts! Valuable lesson - thank you! Want to read your book now. Best wishes. x

    1. Hi Ross,
      Thanks so much for your comment. I'm so pleased you like the shorter blogs, I was just wondering if they were going to make people feel short-changed or not.

  5. That sounds like a great place to visit, and a great learning opportunity. Jodrell Bank is about 40 miles from us and I'd love to visit with the children when they get a bit bigger.
