Walking on the Moon

Venus at sunset


Recommended Posts

Just spotted Venus shortly after sunset today before it followed the sun into the horizon. Very low down, but very bright. Despite being low, it was quite easy to spot from a upstairs window which gave a lower horizon. Although not ideal to view out of a window, the scope was quickly grabbed and at 100x I think I detected the gibbous shape leading across the eyepiece. It was jolly wobbly though! Oiii filter used to control the glare and reign in the psychedelic colourfest from the fast frac...!

Made for a lovely scene with a thin crescent moon, with the lit side of both facing the sunset. Looks like it's going to improve in the coming months in terms of altitude and distance from the sun, so hopefully some good viewing for everyone.
