What with funding applications, telescope schedules to write, the Macc Astro workshop to sort out and random schools phoning me to ask if I can give them talks, it has been a busy week. Still, most of the urgent stuff is done now so, as it was clear, I made time to get out the telescope this evening before I left the Observatory. The Moon looks fantastic. The terminator always fascinates me as it is so different each time you look. It's fun to put in a high power eyepiece and jut watch it drift through the eyepiece. You could almost pretend you were in one of the Apollo command modules, flying over the cratered landscape while your fellow astronauts are somewhere down on the surface. I could watch it for hours :-)
