A FASCINATING NIGHT SKY
The cold and clear winter nights are offering us a great opportunity to do some star gazing. This time of the year is an excellent time to gaze upwards into the night skies. There are up to four planets visible with the naked eye at the moment. Venus can be easily seen in the west shortly after the sun sets, and Mars can be seen in the east as a bright orange star. Also, we’ve had the rare opportunity of witnessing a very special lunar eclipse which was seen on 27 July. Lasting an amazing 103 minutes, it was the longest eclipse of the 21st century – it was an awesome experience for us to share with our guests.
