After a traumatic 6 months lost in a field in Nottinghamshire last year, MiniCASSiE the 1st decided to undertake another mission to the North West Astronomy Festival. Her first stop was Braunston.
Unfortunately, MiniCASSiE I HAS GONE MISSING AGAIN. but this time, after being delivered to the wrong address, she is being held captive in a Manor house.
The rescue mission is now into its second week, with no sign of a ransom and hope of getting her back is dwindling!
So to raise moral, here are her last known movements:
MiniCASSiE I: World Space Week Adventure Diary
MiniCASSiE the 1st arrives in Braunston, Northamptonshire and heads to the canal to inspect the engineering.
After looking at the engineering on the lock gates, I spied a shop that looked interesting,, Whalfhouse Narrowboats. I wonder what they have. The sign says Braunston Chandlers…I went inside to explore.
I’m not sure what all the boat bits are but sure they could be converted to space travel.
Better help with the locks whilst I am still here. These are a bit heavy to push.
Look who has come to say hello, it’s Space Chicken Sam, Camilla’s long lost UK cousin.
Sam has a special white light Solar Scope to show me, so we can look at the Sun in safety.
Who is this that has flown in to see me? It’s Batty Bat, who normally only comes out at night, but made an exception to come and say hello, and get a selfie with me.
Better check in to see what my Mum has been up to…
Going to be a busy day getting the Atomic Rocket ready for the journey to Anglesey, can’t wait as hoping to go to North West Astro Fest next weekend. But first things first, breakfast….in the watercress bed..
After a bit of Solar photography, it’s now time to relax and watch the Sunset…
As the Sun sets on another busy day, time to find the Moon.
I have the Moon on my nose! …..:)
The Sunset is still happening behind me. :) But now the special Solar filter can be removed from the scope and we can look at the Moon.
I hear a noise, what can it be?
What a surprise! It’s Space Chicken Sam, Bailey Bat and Batty Bat come to look at the Moon with me on my last night in Braunston.
Hello, I found Richard on the bridge, going to sneak in his panorama..
The Sun is out today so lets see if we can get a look today on my last day in Braunston.
Bye Bye Braunston and all my new friends, wish me luck…Anglesey here I come…
