Paul read and thoroughly enjoyed an Historical
novel about Hereward the Wake by Lincolnshire author Laurence
J. Brown. Go here to read
a review of the book.
Every month we put a favourite picture taken by us up on this page. It has a broad range of subjects as well as Butterflies and Astronomy so do watch out for the next picture of the month! For 2007 the pages have been re-vamped using Flash Animation but the old style earlier years will still be available for a short while so do enjoy them.
BBC Radio Lincolnshire have me chatting occasionally with some of their presenters so if you are in Lincolnshire & the surrounding area then tune in to FM 94.9 or 104.7 to find out what's up & happening in the night sky for the month ahead. Topics covered often includes a round up of sky events, planets available, what stars to look out for & identify as well as info on the ISS (International Space Station) & when it can be seen.
Over the last few years I have held approx. 9 or 10 times a year Starnights at Gibraltar Point near Skegness in conjunction with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust (LWT). I take a Telescope and show the public the night sky, or if cloudy, I give a public talk on an aspect of Astronomy and Space. The 2008 dates are now organized and uploaded to our site. Each evening will have a specific theme with a publicized talk but if the sky is clear enough to observe then the telescope will be used instead. The Starnights will also be spread amongst four LWT sites for 2008: Gibraltar Point Visitor Centre, Skegness, Whisby Wildlife Park near Lincoln, the Trust Headquarters at Banovallum House, Horncastle and Far Ings Nature Reserve. New for 2008 is a Public Starnight for the Forestry Commission at Chambers Farm Wood near Bardney see the Starnights page for details.
Monthly Sky - a look at what's up in the night sky for the current month.
