When I step out on a clear morning I am treated to a light show,
I can see the aircraft stacking for arrival at Heathrow when the Airport opens at 6 am.

It's like watching a slow motion version of fireflies flying about.

I had a crystal clear sky in London this morning at 5am and I forgot to look up! [Angry.png]

Maybe I’ll see them near enough together tomorrow morning.

Well would you begin to credit it... Clouds this morning. [Shock.png]

On a similar topic, are we not meant to get 15 days of darkness starting tomorrow due to Venus and Jupiter creating a Hydrogen blast on the Sun?
Look here...
