With some physics, you can work out the time difference, and where the likely boundary edge is for that obstacle, which is what the boys at Frisnit have done. From their South London home, the worked out where the big refelctor could be on a map, to deduce what was upsetting their view of Match of the Day.
They’re in South London, Something big that reflects? Canary Wharf?
Yep, the physics proves it. Although right at the end of the article the author did comment that "a quick glance out of the window in this direction…would have saved me a lot of time…)"
Head over to Frisnit.com for the full gory details.

He’s been waiting for a rather nice picture of a Cow and a Kitten playing together to be published by Tim Relf as (a) it was rather cute and (b) it was perfect for a LOL Cat caption (an internet phenomenon with cats and captions pushed together with hilarious consequences).
But I think we can finally get a decent British version here.
Who’s for LOLCows?

Kevin Pietersen has sensationally quit his role as England cricket captain
Sky sources are telling us that Kevin Pietersen has resigned as England Captain after his recent public spat with England coach Peter Moores.
An emergency summit of the 12-man England and Wales Cricket Board was held on Tuesday night to discuss the rift between the pair and further talks are being held on today.
Reports suggest the ECB could dismiss both men. It seems KP has decided to jump before being told to.
More news as soon as we have it..
Who should replace KP?

Nigel Clough has followed in his dad’s footsteps by taking the reigns of Derby County, marking his first foray into league management after a decade managing non-league Burton Albion.
Nigel’s father, the legendary Brian Clough, took the Rams from the old Second Division to become champions of England and European Cup semi-finalists during his spell in charge between 1967 and 1973.
Derby chairman Adam Pearson believes he has the right man, despite Clough’s relative lack of top level experience:
”Nigel is the ideal choice at this time. It is going to be a great challenge for him and all of us at Derby County but one that we are all looking forward to. His track record at Burton is top-drawer and he has improved their standing every season he has been at the club, along with being an excellent man manager.
”It is that kind of progress we are looking for now - someone to grow with the club and lead us in the long term towards success. We have a great squad of players here and Nigel is capable of getting the very best out of them and playing a style of football the supporters want to see.
”Also, he understands this football club and what it means to the people of Derby better than anyone else in the game.”

During the transfer window, we’ll be bringing you the latest transfer gossip and our thoughts on any potential blockbuster deals.
Manchester United are set to offload Carlos Tevez after the striker admitted he would love to play for Real Madrid. (The Sun)
The Daily Dust says: Unlikely, Tevez does a great job - similar to Rooney - in turning a 4-4-2 into a 4-5-1 by dropping deep and helping out the midfield. Unless finances prove to be a stumbling block, CT is staying at United.
Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin is on standby for a £12m move to Arsenal from Zenit St Petersburg. (The Sun)
The Daily Dust says: Just a few months after the club wanted 20 million from Spurs? Harsh, and probably not true. Bet on Arshavin going to Arsenal, although it will be for an ‘undisclosed fee’. He’ll slot into the support striker/Pires-role that Wenger loves, especially with the injuries to the likes of Rosicky. Not at all a Wenger signing though (old, experienced), so very interesting…
Wigan boss Steve Bruce will sell striker Henri Camara to Stoke for £1m as a soon as the Latics tie up a deal for Colombia forward Hugo Rodallega, who is set to arrive to discuss a £4.5m move from Mexican club Necaxa this week. (Daily Mail)
The Daily Dust says: Bit of a roll of the dice on a rather unknown Columbian, but Bruce has actually done surprisingly well with these types (Valencia, anyone?)
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has failed to land Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing with a £14.5m bid. (The Sun)
The Daily Dust says: Incredible that Spurs are linked with Downing through 3-4 different managers, is it lazy journos or someone at the top of the club with a slight obsession? Downing for 15 million looks a lot like Bentley for 15 million.
