Searching the heavens

“I bought a telescope last week. Since then I‘ve been practicing searching through the night skies. Currently the outer planets are visible, so I thought I‘d try and look for them.

“I live in a fairly built-up area so it‘s difficult to see through the light pollution and people‘s houses. Whilst I was training my telescope on the night sky I noticed my neighbour was at her bedroom window.

“She spotted me, opened the window, and shouted, ‘What are doing with that telescope?’, ‘Looking at Uranus.’ I shouted back.

“My court case comes up next week.”

Apologies for wasting your time with such an old joke. I really have got a telescope recently though (A Christmas present).
