Evening all!
I don't know if we are going to have clear skies on Monday 26th April. 
But Mars is about 30 arc minutes north of the famous open star cluster M 35 in Gemini after sunset. 
This conjunction is highlighted in John O'Neill's Sky High Diary for 2021. 
I will try to observe it with the scope. 
I am getting the feeling this is going to be the final Mars conjunction in 2021. 

And on that note I wish you all clear skies from Aubrey.

It appears I have far too much hazy cloud in South Dublin for the Mars - M 35 conjunction. 

Sad - but true.

Hello, Finbarr. 

What an excellent image you have given us here!
Thank you very much for it. 
You got plenty of stars in the open cluster alright.
You were truly blessed for those precious moments before clouds came for you. 

Sadly I had medium high and dense clouds covering 90% of the night sky. 
So no go here in Dublin. 

I heading back to Leo the next clear night.

Clear skies,

Darren.
