I don't quite see what purpose such a category would have. Surely the "interesting facts" would be better put in the astronomical sections to which they relate. What kind of facts do you have in mind?David

Hello Duncan,I was waiting for a bit more support for the idea from other posters to the forum.As David mentioned, if you could explain a little more about the sort of thing that might be included, that could be a help.Regards, Callum

Hello David & CallumWhat I was thinking of was useful astronomical facts (Maybe "To Wow and amaze your friends") with things like distances to the 10 nearest stars and the most up-to date information on exoplanets etc.Duncan

Actually I don't think it would be as good as I first thought. - What about a CfDS page (Campaign for Dark Skies) for them to tell you who they have got to point lights down etc.Duncan
