What's On in Pembrokeshire / Re: Merlin's Bridge - Bridges to be Replaced!!!
« Last post by Maytree on February 17, 2019, 11:14:31 AM »
Milford road bridge replacement seems to be going to plan and on time, they did have the chance to practice for it last month!
I don't have the same opportunities to observe the progress of the Milford bridge as I did with the Pembroke road one.
I did go to the Tip at around two pm yesterday afternoon and the old bridge had gone. (I know, I lead such an exciting life!)
The picture, below, was taken at about 8.45am this Sunday morning. It shows the new bridge in place with work well under way.
There are pictures and videos on Facebook showing a lot more of the action.

Ironic Footnote!

A vehicle with an excavator on it struck the Milford road bridge yesterday evening (12/02/2019) at around 7pm.

Astronomy Group / Starwatch: follow the moon to find the winter hexagon

Starwatch: follow the moon to find the winter hexagon

TIME RAN OUT AT OUR MEETING ON THE 6th FEB AND i FAILED TO SET YOU THIS CHALLENGE!


It’s not easy to find the asterism containing some of the brightest stars in the sky, but this week the moon is acting as a guide:



Now it is time to locate the winter hexagon. This week the moon helps as, on the nights of 14-16 February, it travels through the body of this large star pattern. Like its summer counterpart, the winter hexagon is not a recognised constellation but rather it is an asterism – a pattern of bright stars from other constellations. Begin the search on 13 February, when the moon is just outside the circle, near Aldebaran, the red giant star that marks the eye of Taurus. Three nights later, the moon will be approaching Pollux, the bright yellow star in Gemini, on the other side of the circle. To trace the circle’s circumference, start from Aldebaran, and look downwards to Rigel, the brilliant blue star in Orion; then across to Sirius in Canis Major, the brightest star in the sky. Turn diagonally upwards to locate Procyon in Canis Minor, and then almost vertically upwards to Pollux in Gemini. It is a short hop to Castor, also in Gemini; and then over to yellow-tinged Capella in Auriga, which represents the top of the circle. From there, look back down to the starting point of Aldebaran.

Astronomy Group / Lichfield Cathedral to become 'lunar landscape'
« Last post by Geoffw on February 13, 2019, 08:18:12 AM »


Installation will transform cathedral floor to mark 50 years since Apollo 11 moon landing......... It’s hard to imagine anything less like a lunar landscape than the medieval glories of Lichfield Cathedral. But this summer, an artist will transform its magnificent tiled floor into a representation of the moon’s surface to mark half a century since Neil Armstrong took “one small step for [a] man and one giant leap for mankind”.

The Hubble Telescope's Deep View of the Universe Is Now Even More Astounding!



One of the Hubble Space Telescope's most famous images peered even deeper into the cosmos than scientists had thought.

That photo is the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field (HUDF), which combines hundreds of images taken by the space telescope over multiple years into the deepest view of the universe ever created. The composite pic of a small patch of sky contains a whopping 10,000 galaxies, astronomers have estimated. (The HUDF also refers to that patch of sky, not just imagery of it.)
