I’m not really good at keeping track of my blog stats, and keep on missing anniversaries and so on. However, in 7 posts time I will have made 2000 posts on this blog since I started it in 2004. So it’s time for a competition.
I have a copy of “The Hunt for Planet X” to give away. All you have to do is write about your most enthralling amateur astronomy experience, be it a stunning telescopic view, a meteor blazing overhead or sharing an eclipse with your family. Post your story in the comments here. The stories will be judged by myself and my family, and the best will be promoted to a post of its own as the 2000th post, as well as having a copy of “The Hunt for Planet X” being sent your way. At an average of a post a day, you have 6 days to write your story. Get to it!
