Police Helicopter

I had an unusual experience Saturday night. Setting up my telescope in the back garden seems to have been of interest to the local Five O who after circling around a few times, then proceeded to hover over my house for about 15 minutes, observing my every move. Apart from being unbelievably loud, I'm not sure how to take. it. Glad they're up there keeping me safe, or surprised that being in my garden at night would warrant such attention.

Either way, looks like I got away with it. Being in my garden at night that is.

Must have felt a bit creepy though. Probably looking through a heat sensor which wouldn't show up your astro kit of course so they probably wondered what you were doing.

IR would almost certainly show up on a sensor Carole - I occasionally get police helicopters taking an interest in my obs

The probably thought you were trying to assemble some sort of ground to air missile launcher.
