Last night was our last evening observing sessions before our summer break, and we had mixed fortunes. firstly the euphoria of the big black clouds clearing as the sun set, followed by high cloud, that allowed views of Jupiter and its moons, the as night fell we could see Arcturus and Vega through the light cloud, but that is where the evening ground to a halt.around 9:00 pm by the time we packed up it was to late to open up the hall, so that treat still awaits us.
My thanks to Malcolm and Eileen, for bringing one of the clubs scopes, Irene, Nicky and Renate, Vic, Sheila, and new members Ian, along with Alison and Glen who bought there new scope for a bit of help and tuition.
We now look forward to a break from evening observing and a summer of Solar observing, so keep an eye on the website for latest news.
