Darn High pressure go away!

Post by Vega »

ok, I can handle 2-3 days of cloud cover but this is ridiculous.

There's a high pressure over UK at the moment that just LOVES US. And surprise surprise it's comes bearing cloud... lots of cloud

I guess thats why this forum's gone temporarily quiet?

I work abroad on an 8 weeks away, 8 weeks home basis and the last 8 weeks at home must be the worst I've ever had for astronomy! The telescope has been out 4 times. Twice it got foggy within an hour, one time was too windy and the last time visitors turned up unannounced after I'd been outside for an hour :cry:

Perhaps I should take up radio astronomy :?:

Anyway, I leave the UK on Tuesday so you'll get some clear nights soon. Probably lots of them!

Cheers,
John.

..not quite lifted yet. A plunge of cold polar air on Wednesday should
remove the anti-cyclonic gloom, but will need observers to be appropriately
dressed. So be prepared to wrap up!

Have heard the weather will improve wed/Thursday-so praying to the great star god or whoever.

Is it normal to keep popping outside to look at the sky, even thou its been barely 30 mins since I last checked and you can practically touch the precipitation with your hands if you stretch? I think I am losing the plot. Have taken to waking up and looking out of the window at 3 and 4 in the morning in hope more than expectation. Need some help or preferably clear skies soooon.

I, too, am in the habit of knilbing at around those hours of the morning.
