That's the Jehova's Witnesses, isn't it?

Not that it all worked out to plan for them, or anything.

Either someone has a buckshee 'glow in the dark' device hidden under a kids bed (ala Danny Nightingale), or the map is out by a few hundred metres.

If you read further down, it would seem that they currently only have detectors in USA and Japan. Maybe Hereford is there because of all the "dropped and lost" SUSAT sights, Compasses etc, that the boys claim are lost everytime they leave Sterling Lines :):):):)

The other place of interest is surely the "Sunshine Coast" in QLD just north of Brisbane. Maybe it is to keep track of "Schoolies week", when all the 17-18 yr olds go up there for a week on the piss.:-D:-D:-D

Our mission is provide free radiation monitoring information from private and government sites to the public. We have about 300 radiation monitoring sites across the United States and Japan and will add more sites in other parts of the Earth, when they become available. The Google Map provides a platform to display the information on computers, tablets, Iphones, Android devices, and many others. This is a private company, Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center, LLC (Netc.com) and needs your support.

I didn't notice anything on my way to work this morning - must be well hidden!

Just wait until you're on your way home:

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
Sinking behind bridges in the road
And I think of all the good things
That we have left undone
And I suffer premonitions
Confirm suspicions
Of the holocaust to come.

The wire that holds the cork
That keeps the anger in
Gives way
And suddenly it's day again.
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done.
Two suns in the sunset
Hmm
Could be the human race is run.

Like the moment when the brakes lock
And you slide towards the big truck
"Oh no!"
"Daddy, Daddy!"
You stretch the frozen moments with your fear.
And you'll never hear their voices
And you'll never see their faces
You have no recourse to the law anymore.

And as the windshield melts
My tears evaporate
Leaving only charcoal to defend.
Finally I understand the feelings of the few.
Ashes and diamonds
Foe and friend
We were all equal in the end.

"And now the weather. Tomorrow will be cloudy with scattered showers
Spreading from the east with an expected high of 4000 degrees Celsius"

An excellent bit of Floyd - thank you.

As the sun rarely shines in Hereford, two would be a real bonus!

Bleep
and Booster
(1963-1977)
dot-horiz-sm5.jpg

producers: William Timym / BBC
animation: animatic animation
episodes: 5mins

dot-horiz.jpg


The little alien Bleep and his young human pal Booster traversed the distant
galaxies in Space Freighter 9. Their galactic missions were handed down by
Bleep's father, the moustached Captain. Bleep and his alien race haled from
the planet Miron (or Myron, it varied between the books and films) and their
adventures took them to numerous far-flung and varied alien worlds...

These gentle science fiction tales surfaced on BBC tv's "Blue Peter" circa 1963.
They were drawn by William Timym, who was then known as Tim, and 'animated'
using simple rostrum techniques - panning the images and zooming in on details
whilst Peter "Pugwash" Hawkins narrated the stories - a technique referred to as
animatic animation. Stories were episodic, told in five parts or more on occasion.
Of course, these little films were presented in black and white on tv, but Bleep And
Booster quickly became regulars in the accompanying Blue Peter Annuals too and
here their tales were frequently illustrated with Tim's rich, full-colour art. The duo
were granted their very own tie-in Annuals too and Purnell published special
stand-alone stories, like Bleep And Booster's Space Secret which appeared
in 1967...

Those with a hankering for these splendid simple sci-fi tales should track down
the 1992 Bleep And Booster video from Watershed Pictures which included the
stories of Solaron and The Giant Brain...

Back in the 1940's William Timym drew numerous newspaper and magazine
comic strips, like "Caesar", "The Boss", "Humphrey" and "Wuff, Tuff and Snuff".
He also brought "Bengo The Boxer Pup" to our TV screens. After "Bleep and
Booster", in the 1970s, this multitalented artist turned to sculpture where his eye
for naturalistic animals earned him a plethora of commissions from zoos and
institutions around the world. His most famous pieces included the bronze bust
of "Blue Peter"s much-lamented Alsatian dog Petra which still stands in the
Blue Peter Garden and his magnificent statue of Guy the Gorilla which you'll
encounter near the ape pavilion in London Zoo. Sadly William Timym died in
1990, aged 87....

Meanwhile, Bleep and Booster live on in the memory of a generation of "Blue
Peter" viewers. They even inspired the name of a band. The line-up for Bleep
and Booster includes a former member of eighties chart-stars ABC
Hailed. Not haled
 
What a knob for missing the i out.
But are they getting ready for something ?
When you zoom in on that map it show a woodmill and there's a plane about a click to the North!
