See Jupiter from Sunningwell in National Astronomy Week

Apologies to Michael that there were no pictures of the Aurora Borealis, taken in Abingdon last week, but this evening (Saturday 08/03/2014) there is the chance to see Jupiter as part of National Astronomy Week. Meet by Sunningwell Village Hall at 7pm (Adults £2, Accompanied Children £1) and, weather permitting, telescopes will help you see Jupiter.

“Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, will be at its highest point in the sky for many years to come. Near their closest to Earth, Jupiter and its moons will appear obvious in the sky, offering fantastic opportunities to view the giant planet through a telescope.”

If anybody gets a good picture please send a copy to include here.

    I think the Aurora passed Abingdon by on February 27th. I haven’t heard of anyone who saw it. It was all round Oxfordshire but no reports from the county that I saw. Pity!

    If you did see it do let the Blog know.
