  1. Plenty of tweets of UK sightings tonight. Sadly clouded out here. #noctilucentclouds
  2. Been under the streamer now for a few hours. Not been too heavy but settling nicely. PXL_20210210_001637238.mp4
  3. My memory of streamers is that they can be very narrow. I've known a good few centimetres of snow 5 miles both to my North and South and to have nothing where I am.
  4. Marco Petagna's (from the Met Office) recent tweet looks promising. https://twitter.com/Petagna/status/1356927542918344705?s=09
  5. 11cm here on South Staffs/Shropshire border. Local river Worfe feeds the Severn near Bridgnorth. Heard reports of 13cm in nearby Telford.
  6. Could only manage 11cm here in South Staffs. There had been some settling and a slight thawing during the day so it may have been more! 😗 Not a bad result.
  7. 8cm/3inches and counting here in South Staffs.
  8. Nice display this evening in Scotland. https://twitter.com/EilidhCarr/status/1348758003516891137?s=09
  9. Last night Shropshire got constant lightning but tonight there's flash flooding with it. From last night....
  10. I managed to get some nice clear shots last night.... (Google Pixel 3aXL Night Sight/Astrophotography mode)
  11. No noctilucent clouds tonight but the comet is clearly visible where the clouds should be!
  12. I've got the Pixel 3aXL (same camera/software.) I bought it for the camera and I'd never have believed a smartphone could take such amazing low light/night photos. I've also got a Nikon DSLR but the phone is so convenient.
  13. Managed to get an Editor's Pick amongst these... Eyes peeled for the next few nights with clear skies forecast for most.
  14. My effort here for this evening at 23:15 Not bad for a smartphone! (night sight/astrophotography mode on Google Pixel 3a xl)
  15. Yep..got it here. Massive flash here just with almost instant thunder. Took the power out for a couple of seconds as it struck. We have overhead power cables so frequently get outages with power surges.
  16. Had about an hour of downpours on and off including thunder and lightning. Seems to have drifted off over north of Telford now. I can still hear rumbling.
  17. Loud thunder from over Wolverhampton area now.
  18. Yep...incoming..can hear regular thunder here now and getting louder..
  19. I stood on the original bridge watching the locals diving into the river below for a few Yugoslavian Dinar. I was gutted when it was destroyed in the war.
  20. Markets may well fall further but the time to sell was a few weeks ago. Selling now is like trying to catch a falling knife. You'll get a lot less cash if you crystallise your losses now. I was hoping to retire soon but most of my pot, like millions of others, is c.25-30% less than it was a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately I have part of the pot in cash as a buffer but it may take years to regain the losses.
