Good evening, all.
It is hard to know what the weather is going to be for Wednesday night.
But let us keep an eye on it.
The planets Mars and Saturn will be 4.5 degrees apart in a north south position with the bright star Antares a further 2 degrees south of Saturn.
Is anyone willing to join me at the Sugarloaf Car Park in County Wicklow from about 8 pm?
The quadruple star Rho Ophuichi is also very nearby.
Please reply if you are interested.

Clear skies,
Aubrey.

According to www.met.ie there are clear intervals for Wednesday night.
So observing at the Sugarloaf might be on.
Anyone interested?

Aubrey.

Thank you very much, Fermidox, for this very fine image.
Are you down my neck of the woods, I wonder?
It would be nice if someone could see the event with me at the Sugarloaf -even just for security purposes

Thursday night in Kerry it was seen high in the south and was a fine sight, I got an image that I must post.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.
