On Wednesday night I was unable to see the full Worm Moon because of cloud - so called by old gardeners as the sign of spring and the sighting of worms in the garden due to warmer air. There was an old saying, 17th century (when the gardening rage was for walks) - 'The white lilac walk in the moonlight, the golden laburnum walk in the sunlight'.

Great Philip, does that include a sightseeing tour also. Moon, Venus and Jupiter will be aligned on May 16th 2020, I don't want to miss out.

Evening all Wave It is a new moon, after all! I avoid writing off folk history 'as old wives tales', after all our website here is folk history, but there are many historical claims made about our moon, which often contradict current "science". The fact that its trajectory states that is is moving away constantly from the Earth at a calculated rate each year, so there must have been a time when it was... where? Time spans are so fraught with contradiction in so many areas, for example, the grand old age of the Earth, as great as that is, according to some geologists is far too short a period, even for the earths carbon fossil fuels to have formed, which is one of the reasons why Dr Velikovsky started his research leading up to his books Worlds in collision & Ages in chaos. As controversial as they are, they cannot be laughed off, as so many aspects of them keep rearing their heads from time to time, like the age of the moon, that he describes as later than that of the Earth.

Comet Neowise is just visible to naked eye. It is currently beneath the plough. The photo (15 sec exposure) is better than what I actually saw with my eye. The camera could also just make out the rings of Saturn Not bad for a mid market "point and click". Peter.

Another image of the Moon but when I zoomed in there was Mars. Mars is to the right, best viewed on a tablet or phone so you can enlarge, it's only a dot.

Because only in America are the natives open minded enough to accept the visitors.

Hi all, If you need confirmation that autumn has arrived, if you’re up before sunrise, the constellation Orion is the herald of winter. It's in the east before dawn.
