Please count me in, Paul. 

I have a faint double star to observe in Aries.
With no Moon in the sky I might see the 2 components of J 232. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hello, Paul, Darren and Michael. 

I am seeing on www.clearoutside.com that we are going to have 100% low cloud cover and somewhere between 85% and 100% high cloud cover at Kilmacanogue North, ie, the Sugarloaf car park. 

However I don't mind in the least meeting up with you, but without the telescope. 
I can make it for about 8 to 8.30pm. 

What are you thinking, my friends?

Aubrey.

Fully agreed with that, Michael. 

I have also checked the wind speeds: 18 to 20 mph.
Temperature: 10 degrees.

Hi all, 

I'd be up for a chat too, but I've a heavy cold. Consequently, I've booked in for a PCR test for 7pm. But I might just spin down and sit in the car with the window down just to say quick a 'hi' from a distance. 

All the best, 
Darren.

Start devouring vitamin C, Darren. 
It's the only way!!
And drink hot drinks all the time. 
So pack in all cold drinks. 
Throw them down the sink!

Wishing you the very best, Darren.

Yep. Next Friday night is good for me, Paul. 

Sure what's on the telly anyway? 

Snooker maybe? 

I suppose that's boring!

Seeing that Darren and Paul will not be joining us, Michael, can we cancel tonight altogether?

I'd be up for next Friday too as what I have is only a heavy cold. So, it should be gone by next week. But will the clouds be gone... That's the question!

The long range forecast for Friday looks good at the moment, but then, this is Ireland, therefore...
