Just looking at weather reports for tomorrow and Saturday. Its going to be a sunny day both days :)

But also, its going to be clear skies at night time too...which is perfect for stargazing! I will be bringing my telescope and setting it up on both evenings at 8:30pm on Monument Moor (its a small common next to the main street):

https://goo.gl/maps/AekqUVQG8Cn

Leeds is heavily light polluted and a near full moon is also adding to that light pollution to see very deep space objects but there are still plenty of fascinating bright targets such as Jupiter, moon craters, globular clusters, and nebulas to view through my telescope. It will be my pleasure to show and talk about these cosmic beauties if you have the time to join me either on Friday and Saturday. My b&b landlord is keen to join me too (but no, this landlord aint gonna be cooking meals for us!).

For those of you that need to catch a train after, its a 25min casual walk back to Leeds Station. Or if you prefer bus, there is a nearby bus stop, Bus No. 1 that leaves at 9:21pm, arrives at Leeds station at 9:35pm. Or a 9:51pm bus arriving at Leeds station at 10:05pm. Or a 10:21pm bus arriving at 10:35pm.

Look forward to the main fmuk meetup on Saturday and hopefully, last leg of Diane's Leeds tour and my big parkrun event with Asamaic!

I have to change my b&b as the accommodation was not what I expected! Thankfully found another further away from the Woodhouse Moor and more expensive than I would like but at least I got a proper b&b now. Means I will take longer to join Dianes tour in morning to shower and change after parkrun. Had some time to walk the town a bit. Then will set up my telescope a bit later as originally planned.
