Off to the airport soon. Newcastle to Kuala Lumpur via Dubai. Then a bit of wait before my next flight to Miri. I'll be dashing to different places and ending up in Singapore by the end of the week. Almost on the equator and a nice place to see the entire sky.
I've no idea whether I'll see the night sky while I'm there. Probably too much light pollution in places I'm staying. Astronomically, my primary goal is to see the Southern Cross (aka Crux). And Alpha Centauri - very nearby in the sky. I missed out seeing them from Venezuela last year because they were too close to the Sun. No binoculars or camera going with me so it's purely naked-eye astronomy.
