Another comet!

Hi Gang,
Here the finder chart for another comet called Faye! It will (hopefully!) reach magnitude 9 but it is diffuse, so good hunting!

Eclipse Reminder!!!

Hi Gang,
Don't forget to watch out for tonights eclipsed Moon, not only will it be a different colour at Moonrise, but it will be at it's largest. as you know the Moons orbit is eliptical and tonights full Moon will be when the Moon is at it's closest, so get out there and enjoy it (pray for clear skies gang!)

Partial Lunar eclipse 7th September

Visible at moonrise. Starts at 18:05 UT and finishes at 19:37 UT. Maximum at 18:51, 18 per cent of the moon will be covered by the earth's shadow.
To see anything at all, you will need a flat eastern horizon and very clear skies. Most of the eclipse will take place at a very low altitude.
