One of the more favourable opportunities to observe this 'feature' occurs tonight - beginning around 8.20, max around 10.15, ending after midnight.

Not very favourable as regards moon altitude however, and low cloud has hung around for most of the evening here :(

Yes, Fermi.
I would go along with that.
It was not a very good night for observing low altitude objects like our Moon.
However I did split Almach, Polaris. (Both at 40X)
And also found a new carbon star called LEE 356.
Its magnitude is +9.6 and is positioned near Omicron Andromedae and 2 Andromedae.
I required 112X to see its decent orange hue through high altitude clouds.

Hello John.

My wife and I have just watched the Lunar X video and have greatly enjoyed it.
We have both observed it on 4 occasions.
Thanks a bunch for posting this brilliant video.
The Moon is always fascinating to observe.
By the way, the Hunter's Moon occurs on Wednesday night.

Clear skies from Aubrey.
