If the skies are clear tonight you should see a trail of satellites going from west to east. This is part of Elon Musk’s Starlink project. There are about 50 satellites in all, following each other overhead from 9:53pm to about 10:20pm. They are usually about magnitude 1.8 so quite bright.
Have a look on Heavens Above for more details and future passes.

Don't they kill off viruses by dousing them in alchohol? If so, isn't the answer for each of us to keep the alchohol level of our blood stream up to the required level? Can any of the medics out there advise please?
|Just out of interest, an iFollow/Freeview question.|
at 17:03 14 Jan 2020
Which BBC local radio stations can you get in Suffolk via Freeview?
I'm just north of Bristol, but via my TV I can listen to Radio Solent and Dorset, which must be at least 50 miles away. This is one of a number of stations (Wiltshire, Somerset, Cymru, etc) which appear up around Channel 700. It struck me that if you're adjacent to Suffolk, but can't get Radio Suffolk on the radio, and so are paying for iFollow, that you might be able to pick up the broadcasts through Freeview/Freelisten.
Anyone doing so?

Forgive me if this has already been covered, but is Sunday's match viewable on iFollow? I checked on iFollow and only a 'Audio match pass' is pre-bookable. As it's on Sky, can't one buy a day pass on Sky (Now TV isn't it?) for £10 and also have access to other games played that day?

There's been a lot of publicity in the press and on local television here in Bristol about a local lad called Steve Stacey.
There's a long article about him here:
It's reported he moved from Bristol City to Ipswich, must have been about 60 years ago. It coincides with the time when I went off to do my National Service so I missed him. Does anyone else remember him?

Was berating a fellow villager Gillingham supporter for beating Bolton youth team 5-0 and pointed out he could watch the match of the century on iFollow on October 28th, as it's an evening game, and noticed our fixture list shows we play them 3 times - 21.9.19 (A), 28.10.19 (H) and 26.12.19 (H).
The fixture list doesn't differentiate between cup and league. Anyone know what's what?
|Anyone any thougts on the matter - dark or otherwise?|

Is it a must that Dark Matter will interact at some level with ordinary matter, the matter we know of (baryonic matter), other than by gravity? Or is it an act of faith – a requirement of some theories of what Dark Matter might be that such interactions, even if they are weak or infrequent, must exist?

In mid-winter, what effect do rear window demisters and heaters (as just two examples of extra loadings) have on duration/mileage? Similarly, what about mid-summer air conditioning?

Looks as if today's game is available world wide across the internet on Radio Suffolk.
|Brexit - The Medical View|
at 10:29 2 Feb 2019
Physicians were unable to reach a consensus: Should Brexit take place? The Allergists were in favour of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Brexiters had a lot of nerve. Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted. Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!" The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow. The Plastic Surgeons opined that May’s proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter." The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea. Anesthesiologists though it was all a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Parliament.

One of the specialist subjects on tonight's Mastermind - 7:30 BBC 2 - is Bobby Robson.
Come on, own up, which of you is it?
|Arron Banks - DEF. INFO|
at 07:55 5 Nov 2018
As I've reported on here before, Arron Banks lives on the edge of our village - a couple of miles this side of the First Severn crossing.
So, I can confirm that the £8 million everyone is talking about on the radio this morning did come from Rock Services. I was behind him in the queue at the village post office when he drew the money out. It took the girl behind the counter four days to count it all.

Can I suggest we have a referendum to see if we should have a second referendum on Brexit?

|Happening on Friday - DEF INFO!!|
at 12:26 25 Jul 2018
This Friday night, July 27th, the second total lunar eclipse of 2018 will take place - there, I knew you'd be excited. The moon will rise around 9.00 pm and will already be partially eclipsed. It will then go on to full eclipse, this finishing at 10.13pm.
It will then slowly come out of eclipse until the full disc is visible again around half-past midnight. It's difficult to predict the colour at full eclipse because that depends on the state of the atmosphere at the time, but a dark red seems a good bet.
Definite confirmation of the Met Office forecast of clouds and rain on Friday.

|Pop-up ads question.|
at 11:32 9 Jul 2018
My PC has the well known ad-blocking browser plug-in. It was disabled for this site.
For the past several days, when I first go to the TWTD site (not logged in), an ads pop-up request appears - to which I give consent. However, I've not seen any ads since this pop-up appeared.
As I said, the well know ads blocker is still disabled for this site, but no ads appear. Is this what was intended?.
