Dropping The Ball

Being a long-time astronomy geek, I decided it was time to take the short lunchtime walk from my place of work to Sydney Observatory

Other than a dude at the reception desk, the place was deserted. I looked through the exhibits.

When I had finished looking around inside, I noticed it was a few minutes before 1pm. I was therefore able to observe the dropping of the Time Ball (below). I made a video of this exciting event which may become a future episode of Noswonky’s Most Exciting Moments.
