Plotina: raising the bar for grab ‘n’ go astronomy.

 

2018 was not an unusual year here in Scotland, as astronomical observing and associated note-making are concerned.

Total number of nights where observations were made in 2018: 137

Percentage of nights available for observation in 2018: 37.5 per cent.

This is in accord with the claims of several British historical observers; T.W Webb, William F. Denning & Charles Grover.

For more details on this interesting topic, see my new book: Chronicling the Golden Age of Astronomy.
