NGC 1502

Lunar eclipse + Mars, 27th July

Recommended Posts

 

Good afternoon all......

Most of us will be aware that this Friday evening the 27th July, the totally eclipsed moon rises in the southeast, followed by brilliant Mars at a close opposition. Saturn & Jupiter also on view.

Members of Castle Point Astronomy Club plan to meet on Leigh cliffs, at the top of Belton Way West Leigh on Sea, close to the junction with Thames Drive and Marine Parade. That’s at the top of the hill leading up from Leigh railway station going west. Whatever the weather I plan to be there soon after 8.30 pm BST.  It’s a public area, so please feel free to turn up and say hello. We will make a judgment call as to whether it’s worth staying.

At the moment the forecast is for cloud, so annoying after all the hot sunny skies. But I’ve learned not to celebrate too soon about a good forecast, or let a poor one get me down. We will find out soon enough what will actually happen.

Cheers from Ed.
