Autumn is here...

...with the promise of longer nights, but will it be clear? For a die hard visual deep sky observer like myself, the shitty weather all summer has been hard to live with. I miss observing, and have only had frustrating, hazy, glimpses of the jewels beyond through holes in almost endless cloud cover. Bugger La Nina and Britain's stupid maritime climate, but here's hoping that with the winding down of the La Nina effect the conditions will improve.

On a serious note, I am looking forward to the science from this awesome device. And no, the world is NOT going to end. Not because of the LHC anyway.
