8pm Friday 6th July is our next members night. As Perry is away Jacquie Milner will present this July's "Sky for the Month" talk!
We have a big month ahead of us with plenty to see in the sky. There will be a total lunar eclipse on the same night Mars will be at opposition. There is a tiny whisper of a partial solar eclipse! All the planets will be visible in the evening sky and the majesty of the winter Milky Way is there, too. Can we fit all this into one hour? We're going to try!
July 21st all the planets visible to the unaided eye will be visible at once! pic.twitter.com/ZrUxYTPxC8— Mount Burnett Observatory (@MBObservatory) July 6, 2018
