Hard at work

A bit of cold for the winter, finally!  Might be a bit chilly but at least it brings clear skies.  Night shifts can drag a little and whilst usually hard at work, it's nice to take 10 minutes on the roof stargazing.  Whilst we aren't in the darkest part of the work, it's not a bad location.  On a good night the milky way is clear and on a better night a bit of meteor action.

The best nights I've had (for stars!) have been in the USA, where it's much easier to get away from the ever present light pollution.  That being said the last proper meteor storm I saw was a mind blowing experience that left you lost for words longer that 1 syllable, wow being most common.
