    Oh, interesting.

    Thanks as ever for the tip, Mr Bugle.

  2. What a wonderful idea. Hope the skies are clear.

  3. Whereabouts on Blackheath? I walked across it today and couldn’t help noticing how big it is :)

  4. Hi Jo,
    I’ve been checking out probable locations on the Heath this morning, and we will make an announcement next week.
    It’s likely to be close to the Blackheath Gate of Greenwich Park (across Shooters Hill Road) near the Long Pond Road pathway – but will confirm via Twitter next week (@Flamsteed).
