Should we get them signed up for our Christmas party?

The photograph in this tweet is extraordinary. Look carefully…
“Cynthiae figuras aemulatur mater amorum” = “The mother of love (Venus) imitates the form of Cynthia (the Moon)” – Galileo
Thank you, Bill! It was really fun to prepare the talk and I was delighted it seemed to go down so well.
I make the monthly video using the Movie Maker Windows app (free and built into the operating system). It’s not an elegant system, but pretty straightforward when you get the hang of it.
Finding free-to-use royalty-free music is a bit tricky. Googling helps but you do have to be careful about what sites you click onto. Some can be dodgy. Our first videos used a website called MelodyLoops but while that’s royalty-free, it’s not free to use. There’s a one-off payment per piece of music, I think.
I’ve used yourclassical.org and incompetech.com – but be careful you click on website buttons and not on advert buttons! Licensing under ‘creative commons’ (rather than buying a license) generally means free to use as long as you credit the artist/website.
Sumitra used Jamendo.com for a Perseids timelapse she did a few years ago and that seems good.
Ah, but Galileo told people about it 😉

That’s some peanut!
Focus the telescope by eating the doughnuts
Tej, you should write an astronomy travelogue book with that as the title!
Wow! Amazing, Tej!!
Didn’t see it at all, but TBH I haven’t rushed to watch it on iPlayer. I always feel a bit as though Dara O’Briain is trying to be Brian Cox and Brian Cox is trying to be Dara O’Briain. And only one of them is coming close to succeeding.
