Got this website tip from a ‘pocket rocket’ in her own right. A good shout.

Great to help find those planets out there. Mind you, if you cannot find Venus at dusk at the moment you are doing something wrong!

Those of you with iPhones, yes you guessed correctly, the App also exists. Well it always would be wouldn’t it? It is quite impressive.

In fact Baz downloaded it on his phone in Origins last night. He got the “Er,……..Hello……you all right mate?” from the bloke stood next to him at the bar. Not really surprising as Baz held his phone up at the ceiling for him to squint at the screen which changed its stellar view as he pirouetted around. A look not enhanced by the fact that he was sipping café frappé  from a highball glass at the same time!
