not sure for half term, ther is a lot o according to my mums calendar but all boring stuff like dentist appointments, but i'm just glad to have a break, and I love winter especally the long nights, more time to do stargazing XD

Posted: 24-10-12 17:47 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

aw, wow u luv stargazin.. first time i heard that.. do u live in lyk open areas or sumfin. coz i obv live in the city so it is a miracle to see a star from all those high buildings

I live on the edge of a town, but it's not too bad it's better in the winter as it's darker and ther is less dust in the air last weekend I went out and I saw the milky way, not in it's full glory but it wasn't bad, cause technically i'm not supposed to see it in a urban area, in the back garden there is only on street light which is a problem, but i can block it out if i stand behind a tree, one thing i've learned is that you see more if you let your eyes adjust to the conditions, at first when i go outside i can't see the milky way but after 20 mins it appears and then gets brighter and brighter.

Oooh that sounds soo cool, we live in the city so u hardly ever get to see the star, the moon.. un like astronomy ??

have you ever seen that program on bbc, stargazing live? and where do you live?

Posted: 24-10-12 18:00 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

i live lyk around central/east london.. so its difficult to see anythin in the sky beside the buldings..

no i havent. wen did they show that..recently.. or a while ago

thats sad, i think schools should run trips to dark sky sites like dartmoor, it will give people an oppertunity to see things they've never seen before, i camped on the edge of dartmoor for holiday this summer, the milky way was even better there and we were only 2 miles outside the nearest town. stargazing live is on in january, usually at the beginning, i think there are some episodes on youtube, as well as being informative it's also really entertaining.

Posted: 24-10-12 18:10 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

aww thnx for lettin me know.. i soo agree.. i was always interested in astronomy..but i wanna actually go out like u n see it for myself.. i would love it if there was skool trips were we could do that.. like once in year six we went out to Wrotham and did some star gazin.. it was quite fun.. 

Posted: 24-10-12 18:18 by ? Secret - Team GR

cool, i wanted to do astronomy for gcse but my school didn't introduce it until last year :( but then i thought it's best to keep some things as hobbies. I usually end up doing stargazing by myself as no one else i know is interested in it, but it is quite relaxing, although my cat does like to come out with me XD

Posted: 24-10-12 18:21 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

yh i think, astronomy would be more fun as a hobby rather than a subject itself.. but wow ur skoool does astronomy for gcse.. aww u got a cat as well.. my nan has 10 kittens..

Posted: 24-10-12 18:24 by ? Secret - Team GR

10! wow, ones hard enough for meXD I would be interested to see how well i would do on a exam paper with the knowledge i've got. I've been interested in it since winter2009

Posted: 24-10-12 18:26 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

loool.. wat colour is ur cat.. 

aw, wat got u interested in astronomy.. or is just something that uve always been fascinated in ?

Posted: 24-10-12 18:28 by ? Secret - Team GR

my cat is ginger and white, although his ears sometimes have black tips when he has been under someones car

i got interested by reading this disney child science book, there was a diagram of a well known constellation called orion, and I wanted to see if i could find it so i wen toutside and looked for it, I then started looking for other constellations as the year went on and by winter the following year I had seen 35 constellations and so far now i've seen 45 out of the 88. After that I used as samll telescope i got to look at the moon and then binoculars to see other things like start clusters, in the following summer i saw my first meteor shower, I then got a 5 inch telescope for my birthday and I've seen so much with that, I record everything I've seen. I guess one thing led to another. stargazing was the only that made camping in a field on the edge of dartmoor bearable XD

Posted: 24-10-12 18:34 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

wow thats amazing !!! 45 out of 88.. i dont think ive even seen one properly yet...

I have to go now.. bye.. take care.. and enjoy ur b-day.. **
