Have to say it's not looking too good for tonight. Was gonna go along and see Mars and chat to folks about scopes and stuff, but the weather looks to be unco-operative.

Might go along if it clears a bit. I hope tomorrow night is better!

Anyone else going along?

I was going to drop by but unfortunately I'm still at work.

I'll be driving home that way (If I ever get out of here tonight!) but wont have a scope with me.

Cheers,

Pretty crap isn't it :-/

How do you organise a public star party when the weather is so awful?
Luck? :-)

Well, it's looking clear at the moment (North Dublin) so it should be same at Sandymount. All things being well, I'll see some of you later.
I'm driving a silver Ford Focus hatchback and will be bearing a thick polo neck sweater :-)

If you recognise me, say hi!

Glad you had a clear night for it last night. I was thinking of yous as I was cycling home through the really dense fog we had in Maynooth at 11pm. I thouht the weather had beaten you again, but it looks like Sandymount has better weather than Maynooth!
