I strongly recommend the Star Walk app. It might cost you a couple of quid, a one-off, but it's incredibly beautiful. Point your phone or iPad at the sky and it tells you exactly what you're looking at in glorious view. Move your device around and you can follow the sky around, even below the horizon, and there are lots more facets to the app. I wouldn't be without it. Apart from Daily Art, it's my very favourite app.

I'm absolutely no expert on telescopes, but I would just say that, in order to save both disappointment and your hard-earned dough, you should do mucho homework before you buy, preferably on astronomy-type websites. It's something of a minefield, and I have a feeling that you definitely get what you pay for.

That is a mountain in Peru thats also beneath the horizon of the equator.

“The ultimate horizon”

Please, remember me
Happily
By the passion flower vine laughing
With bruises on my chin
The time when
We counted every black car passing
By my house beneath the hill
And up until
Someone caught cold that wasn't a cold
With a cough, and fever,
A hospital
A vision too removed to mention
But


Please, remember me
Fondly
I heard from someone you’re still living
And then
They went on to say
That the pearly gates
Had some eloquent graffiti
Like ‘We’ll meet again’
And ‘Fuck the Trump’
And ‘Tell my mother not to worry’
And angels with their grey
Handshakes
Were always done with such abandon
And

Please, remember me
At Halloween
Making fools of all the neighbors
Our faces painted white
By midnight
We’d forgotten one another
And when the morning came
I was ashamed
Only now it seems so silly
That season left the world
And then returned
And now we’re fed up by the city
So

Please, remember me
Mistakenly
In the window of the internet and kitchen
Then pass us by
But much too high
To see the empty roads at early hours
Leave notes of wisdom not read
Just like the gates
Around holy places
With words like ‘Beats underground’ and ‘Don’t Look Down’
And ‘Someone Save Temptation’
And

Please, remember me
As in a dream
We were raised like forest babies
Among the fallen trees
And fast asleep
Aside the weeds now taller than trees
That fell silently
Losing all their height
Gave a gift for tommorrow
In an empty canopy so new life cries
A new idea
That swings as high as any savior
But

Please, remember me
My misery
And how it cost me all my wonder
Those friends that love the rain
And chasing trains
The colored birds above there running
In circles round the well
And where it spells
On the wall behind St. Peter’s
So bright with cinder gray
in spray paint
‘Who the hell can see forever?’
And

Please, remember me
Frequently
In the car waiting for others to finish
My hand between my knees
I was only free to dream
And said I am the unknown poet
But never meant to last’
The clowns that passed
Made me come up with anger
DC was filled with circus dogs
Filling parking lots
It had an element of danger
So

Please, remember me
Finally
And all my uphilling musing
now sleds down the hill
But if I make
The pearly gates
I did my best to make a drawing
Of evil and good
A boy and girl
An angel kissing a devil
A monkey and a man
An orchestra and choir
Filling all of Earth
an auditorium
with old familiar songs.

Old Hippie

Americans are most all immigrants.

HOW FAR WE HAVE COME

When our fathers came to this golden land
There was nothing but forests and rivers and sand
And a few million Indians running around
Now look what we’ve made of the little they found

There’s cities of silver that shine in the night
Churches of splendor and halls of delight
And only an echo of Indian drums
Who can deny how far we have come

The slave ships they came with the whip and the rack
And a million black people with scars on their back
Picked cotton, drew water, and slept in the cold
With a bible for comfort they were happy and cold

The laws they were passed, slavery went
Our lives integrated at least six percent
In the sharecroppers shack and the big city slum
Who can deny how far we have come

The immigrants came from the green Irish shore
From Poland and Russia, ten million and more
Germany, Italy, all the world round
To settle our ghettos and immigrant towns

Their brains and their bodies they put to the wheel
To build our great factories and towers of steel
To march to our battles and carry our guns
Who can deny how far we have come

Now all through the Andes, they’ve heard of our name
On the factory wall, in the palace of shame
They drink Coca Cola and the times that they spend
Goes straight to the pockets of our businessmen

To pay for our Fords, and our split level homes
Our Hi-Fis and records and six percent loans
Our profits protected with dictators guns
Who can deny how far we have come


In Asia and Africa, they’re learning too
How free enterprise can do wonders for you
South Africas prisons are bursting with men
Barbed wire keeps the Vietnamese in

Where elections are daydreams that never get far
American weapons are there standing guard
We’re ready to fight for the lands that we run
Who can deny how far we have come

Our fears they are many though they’re seldom saved
They’re black and they’re yellow and they’re brown and they’re red
They see through the legend, they smell the decay
They’re learning to fight the American way

And we in our armchairs are quick to condemn
Our bankbooks are falling, our profits might end
The breaking of change is our funeral hum
Who can deny how far we have come

When our fathers came to this golden land
There was nothing but forests and rivers and sand
And a few million Indians running around
Now look what we’ve made of the little they found

There’s cities of silver that shine in the night
Churches of splendor and halls of delight
And only an echo of Indian drums
Who can deny how far we have come

Not to compare myself in any other way, Steve, David Attenborough majored in zoology and has a strong interest in anthropology (I think his son still lectures on anthropology in Australia); and I majored in anthropology and have a strong interest in zoology.

Thus, I've watched and read a lot of his work, plus others such as on the Sky Nature channel, and agree with most evolutionary theory - but, to my mind, it does not explain everything/there are holes.

Meteors are colorful While the human or ape eye usually cannot discern many colors, cameras often can. Pictured is a Quadrantids meteor captured by camera over Missouri, USA, early this month that was not only impressively bright, but colorful. The radiant grit, likely cast off by asteroid 2003 EH1, blazed a path across Earth's atmosphere. Colors in meteors usually originate from ionized elements released as the meteor disintegrates, with blue-green typically originating from magnesium, calcium radiating violet, and nickel glowing green. Red, however, typically originates from energized nitrogen and oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere. This bright meteoric fireball was gone in a flash -- less than a second -- but it left a wind-blown ionization trail that remained visible for several minutes.

You will see plenty of colours in a meteor shower with the unaided eye if you set yourself up to observe as ideally as possible. A few years ago we were in Andalucía in an extremely remote location with a perfectly dark sky (1). There was no moon (2). The sky was cloudless and free of haze (3). My sister and I set ourselves up with two reclining deckchairs and aimed our gaze at the radiant of the Perseid meteor shower (4). I made sure that my distance specs were clean (5). We were lucky in that the temperature remained above 25C all night but we did douse ourselves in 50% deet. We saw many shooting stars, most of which were coloured other than "white." In less than ideal conditions, or if you just catch an accidental glimpse of a passing shooting star out of the corner of your eye, you may miss any colour. Of course, the colour-detecting cones in your retina are best in bright light...

And this has got what to do with poetry? Well, you never know...

Without recalling any given location, I do remember looking up at many stars from outback Australia. (I'm still looking into a telescope, by the way, but figure I'll wait for warmer weather in Manchester to open the door to my juliet balcony, so am not in such a hurry.)

We've travelled quite a bit around Andalucía, but as it happens the desert at Tabernas is very close to where we mostly stay. The film set used for several spaghetti westerns is still there and is a tourist attraction. We stood in the desert but viewed the Wild West from afar only. We could only ever go in the height of summer and the temperature was routinely around 37-40C most days, except in the Sierra Nevada mountains and the somewhat lower-altitude sierras to the east. On one memorable day we tried to sit on a beach at Cabo de Gata in a gale-force wind and 40-degree heat, which wasn't quite like Bude in February. The humidity was so low that it was comfortable in the shade even on the hottest days. In a few minutes we'll be having our usual Wednesday cheesy night in, no cookery required, eaten off the lovely fishy-pattern pottery from the village of Alhabia in Almería province. The pottery may be Spanish but the cheeses will be English, French and German, the olives from Sicily, the cherry tomatoes from the Netherlands and the red and white wines from Puglia and Sicily. Oh, and Bath Olivers... I still proudly sport my EU badge when I'm out and about.

I don't recall it from when I twice visited my late uncle and auntie (who had moved down from Manchester to a bungalow in Kilkhampton) but the Bude Sea Pool looks very inviting - when the climate warms-up and covid cools down, of course.

I'm a member of Friends of Bude Sea Pool. It's been cleaned out, renovated and been given upgraded yet very tasteful facilities. It's a grand local asset these days. We had an old aunt of Mrs Steve and the aunt's daughter living in Kilk until about 20 years ago so we know it well. It's a few hundred feet above sea level and we joke about its chilly climate as compared with Bude. The sea pool is a great place to get sunset views over Summerleaze Beach to the Downs beyond. I have many such photos! Our favourite lockdown exercise is a quick stomp round the Downs, from Crooklets beach to Summerleaze, past the sea pool. It's been bracing recently!

Also, I have since checked on the internet and am quite sure that the cliffs are indeed "sandstone" there in your nice part of the world - but, as you probably know, it varies throughout Cornwall.
