I regret spending 40 years devouring anything and everything to do with space.

I got a call about 45 minutes ago "alright Troggy, i've just been looking up at that star trek thingy that Elton musk sent up"

Me > EH?

Mate > You know that load of sat stuff that Elton musk has sent up, they line up in the sky

Me > awwwww right, you mean Elon musks Starlink, but erm... you haven't been watching it because it isn't visible over us at the moment

Mate > well you'd better get someone to tell them that because i can see them right now, over towards the castle and heading south

Me > erm, no mate they aren't over there they come over from West to East give or take a few degrees (i then go outside to see if i can see what he's talking about)

Me> right mate i'm outrside and looking up but i can't see them, whatever it was must have passed

Mate > flip me Trogg youu must be blind mate they're there right now i'm looking at them, they look like a line of stars just hanging in the sky..

Me> you total f**king idiot, the reason they look like a line of stars is because that IS a line of f**king stars, the starlink sky train moves, they aren't geostationary they are orbiting....ffs

Mate > well i din't know that did i, i was just looking for a line of lights n the sky..... so that bright light isn't the space station them?

Me > no, it's the planet Venus and just to the left of it is Mars.....i'm going, you've done my bloody head in ya daft tw*t

Not bad. Going onto the river this morning for a few silvers before it gets too hot. How is the rest of the clan? Take it you are still busy. More fishing required!!
