    After seeing tonight's (11/11/18) close encounter I had a little browse to see if there were any occultations due. There are a few others in the meantime but this one is the first one due that's at a decent altitude. Hope this is enough warning

    At around 7am, the waning crescent Moon will be at 14 degrees above the horizon and between Venus and Jupiter. Given some clear skies, this should make quite a spectacle. The 25 day old moon will be 17.8% illuminated, and about 4 degrees from Jupiter and 4.5 degrees from Venus. Well worth a look in binos or a widefield photo opportunity. Related article here at Astronomy Now magazine, including details of an occultation of Xi Ophiuchi if you are far enough North. https://astronomynow.com/2019/01/22/see-a-dawn-triple-conjunction-and-a-lunar-occultation-on-31-january/

    A new moon so good conditions if the skies allow. Mars and Neptune will be separated by only 8 arcminutes so could make a colourful double in the eyepiece. Note: it may also be a good opportunity to look for Comet 46P/Wirtanen.

    Mid-transit 15:20. UK sunset 16:72. Not particularly well positioned for UK observers, but some of us might not get to November 2032 to see the next one ...
