Not What We'd Planned For...
We didn't plan for it, we don't want it but, in these unprecedented times, we have more time at home than we've ever known.
Whether you're self-isolating, social distancing, under forced lockdown or simply watching what you spend, we all need plenty of simple activity to keep us entertained and distracted.
I've been a backyard astronomer for over 30 years. It's not a critical skill, nor does it make me a key worker, but I hope I can play a small part in improving our day-to-day wellbeing in this extraordinary time.
The Beginner's Guide to Backyard Astronomy is my course for new and novice astronomers. It will help you get to grips with your telescope and find your way around the night sky.
Right now, while you may just have the time to learn to enjoy the night sky, I'd like to give you free access, with no strings attached.
You'll get full access to all 40 lessons until at least 30th April 2020.
I hope you and your loved ones stay safe.
