Visited Kelling heath holiday park for a few days, the break being cancelled in May (due to you know what) and was rescheduled for September.  There was one clear evening what a stunning sky, Jupiter and Saturn to the south, Capella  low in the north.  The milky way arched overhead stretching from Auriga to Cygnus down to Sagittarius and you could see it with the naked eye.  when you live in a City this is a bit of a culture shock, Fabulous!
