Missed this one yesterday so returned today, but couldn't spot it from ground level. Followed Ted's lead, and jogged up to the top of the Children's Hospital car park where it can be easily seen. Then off to St James Park for my first visit: NUFC 3-0 Saints, sitting in the highest away-end in the land. Whenever there was a lull in the game, there was a great view to be had of the city despite the 'fog on the Tyne' rolling in. Pity that my team didn't turn up, but an otherwise enjoyable few days in Newcastle.

The active station is where the OS says it is, on the roof of the Bedson building. The dome is just visible at ground level from across the road but a much better view is obtained by sneaking up to the top level of the hospital's multi-storey car park.

Through luck as much as anything else I managed to spot the same item that Griemeister has previously logged.

I did see a leica like object on a building a couple of hundred metres away, but nothing visible at this location.

Nothing to be seen from ground level. As I was attending a course in the Herschel Building, I took a shot of the roof from the staircase at the NW end of Herschel - nothing visible that I can see.

Walked around the building from near and far but couldn't see any signs of anything. I'm guessing whatever is there is in the centre of the roof and you need far more height than is available from ground level - it was Sunday today so I was unable to ask anyone regarding it's prescence. If one of the Newky Uni students falls onto this website maybe they can view it from one of the taller adjacent buildings and fill us in.
