Moon and M45

Hi guys,

Hope you are all well. Just thought I would draw your attention to the fact that the Moon is going to be 2.5 deg from the Pleiades on Thurs 20th. I know Andy's got it covered in the diary, just thought I would give it an extra mention. Nice imaging and observing oppourtunities. You want to be looking East(ish) from about 2am onwards till about 5. The guys from Spaceweather.com have [url=http://www.spaceweather.com/images2006/20jul06/skymap_north.gif]this map[/url].

Unfortunately John after many nights of clear skies, clouds rolled in...was hoping they would produce thunder etc. but no...

I caught an image of the circumzenithal arc the other day which I'll post soon tho.
