Despite the atrocious light pollution here in Manchester, you can still see some astronomical objects. This evening Stuart and I were in the back yard and we saw the Andromeda galaxy (the nearest galaxy to the Milky Way), lots of satellites, and a Perseid! The peak of this shower is next weekend, but the shower is active over a few weeks so there is a good chance of seeing some on any night over the next two weeks, assuming the weather cooperates of course. It has been very cloudy over the last few weeks, so it was nice to see that the Universe is still there :-) Next weekend I'm going observing in deepest darkest Yorkshire with some members of Macclesfield Astronomical Society, hopefully we will have some luck with the weather...
