    We got a couple of clear nights.
    So if you're home with the kids and want to get out in the garden, even just with the missus.

    Uncle nugey will tell you what to do .

    Tonight, we have Venus, at greatest elongation, which means it's as far away from the sun as can be, now, as its nearer to the sun than we are, it's about as bright as can be.

    Its located, right now, in the west, just where the sun has set and is high in the sky above the sun.

    With no moon tonight it's the brightest thing in the sky right now.
    Unmissable.

    At 8.25 tonight. The space station comes over cardiff.
    It rises at that time over your horizon but will be almost overhead at 8.29.

    Itll be very bright tonight.

    I'tll rise in the west, and come up along the left hand side of venus tonight before going over our nut and setting in the east.

    Get the kettle on, have a cup of bovril and get outside with the family guys.

    And bamboozle the family with fact such as the iss travels at 18,500 mph and takes 90 mins (a football match) to go around the earth.

    The astronauts see 18 sunrises and sunsets a day

    Hey @Nugent can you give me an idea of a few things to show the kids tomorrow night over the Forest of Dean? I’m doing alternative schooling at the moment and a bit of astronomy would be perfect.

    They learned how to jumpstart a tractor from a telehandler today.

    Well, unfortunately not much to look at at the moment mate.

    The 2 best planets , jupiter and Saturn are out about 5 am at the moment.

    The moon wont be visible for another week.

    The space station is your best bet with the kids mate.
    It rises at 19.37 tomorrow and does the same track in the sky as tonight.
    Follow my advice as above.

    I.e. look in the west where the sun set.
    Find venus (brightest thing in the sky by far)
    Look to the left hand side of it.
