Gents, I happened to be out at 4.30 this morning and the sky was truly glorious. Jupiter blazing away under Pegasus, Mars halfway between Aldebaran and Alnath, the crescent moon beneath Gemini, Sirius twinkling furiously and Orion with the rest of the winter retinue glittering away. Didn't take any photos but it was a wonderful scene.

Clearer skies,
Finbarr.

Thank you for your naked eye report, Finbarr. 
It's truly encouraging for us all to get our scopes out eventually after all these successive cloudy nights.
I saw Jupiter on Tuesday night, but it was going in and out of many clouds. 
I believe it's almost at opposition. 

Clear skies to you, Finbarr, from Aubrey.

Hi Finbarr,

You've painted some lovely images in my mind with your description of the early morning sky...exquisite!

All the best,

Darren.
