Jupiter Night!

Gerry Bond (@gwb007)

70% of the solar system rotating around the sun, is Jupiter. We are lucky to have it that way. If it were larger another star would be a distict embarrassment.
Jupiter passes the meridian about 2330 tonight. Let’s find all the details of the history and science of this planet.

After the break…

Deep-Sky Observing

Callum Potter (BAA Deep Sky Section, AstronomyNOW contributor)

Callum writes: “I’m currently Deep Sky Section director, and although the deep sky is my main interest, I’ll have a look at most things, even planets (though I draw the line at the Moon 😉 I also run one of Dominic’s MeteorPi meteor cameras in search of bright meteors. Principally I am a visual observer, though I dabble with wide field imaging and using remote telescopes from time to time.”

Coffee break, members activities.
