The other night I went out with my binoculars and had a lovely look at Jupiter including three of its moons. I was so impressed that I dragged Father out bodily (even he was impressed) and got Ribby out of bed. She was impressed too. Some of the children have a passing interest in astronomy, but other than that, I alone in the house deplore the high wattage of the neighbors' security lights.
