Yes, a (short) observation

Post by Mike Feist »

Yesterday evening the the sky was partially clear here in Sussex but only for a very short while so I did manage to get a bino observation of the Moon and Mars about 2 degrees apart. Since then the clouds are again 100%.

The moon is out? :?

Haven't seen anything of the sky for the last 2 weeks except a small patch of blue early this morning! :(

I almost forgot my password it's been that long since I saw any clear sky.

One thing though, almost finished Neil Armstrong's bio, a bit of a heavy read, but the chapters specific to Apollo 11 are brill. I never realised that the landing itself was so seat of the pants stuff!

Anyway, not seen anything from here for at least 2 weeks :(

Clear skies tonight. But moon so bright that there was zvery little viewing apart from the beautiful m45.

Then I got so very cold. Feet especially. Time to go in.
