PostSubject: Jupiter   Tue Aug 23, 2011 6:29 am

Had a party Friday evening and when everyone had left thought I'd get my telescope out for a quick quater hour look at the moon. Just before I packed it away I thought I'd point it at a bright star just below and to the left. To my surprise I got my first look at Jupiter and it's moons I was well chuffed! There's quite alot of light pollution round our way wasn't sure I'd see anything.

Brilliant, I can't wait to get a good look at it. I didn't get my set up till Jupiter had gone from our skies. I'm really happy it is back. I noticed it a few nights back.

hey, jupiter is an amazing sight to see, its been clearly visible in the sky in the u.k. for about a month, maybe two now, VERY bright Smile Uranus is also visible, to the naked eye its just a greeny-blue smudge only really visible out the corner of your eye, if you got an iphone or and andriod download the google sky map application, really great from star gazers Smile
