Eclipsnic Tonight from 9pm!

Blackheath Eclipsnic Lunar Eclipse Picnic tonight 9pm
Come and wonder at the pink moon tonight on Blackheath! From 9pm the Flamsteed amateur astronomy society will be holding a lunar eclipse picnic (wonderfully dubbed the “Eclipsnic”), at the location shown above, which isn’t a million miles away from the Blackheath Tea Hut. Anyone can come along, it’s free, but I guess warm clothes and a pair of binoculars would be a plus. It’s a great idea. More info on their site.

    Can you do something about the weather, please, Mr Bugle?

    @Adam, put a warm jumper on, bring a flask of coffee (or get one from the hut) and live a little! :)

    Oh, and I find that the International Space Station should be visible at the same time. It’s around at 21.49, coming up in the SSW and heading E, reaching 22 degrees above the horizon. Magnitude -2.4 in astronomical terms, which means “extremely bright”.

    Yes, get rid of the clouds please.

    Popped along at the end (we were the ones with the balloons.) Saw Saturn and its lovely rings.

    Thanks for your efforts, guys.
