We are excited to launch our Zoom talk with @julianonions this evening speaking about Galaxies, One Gigayear at a Time.
Talks will be every 2nd & 4th Wed of the month at 8pm. If interested, email our secretary who will share the details with you.
Rich in bright meteors and fireballs, the Perseids meteor shower is one of the best of the year and it peaks on Aug. 11-12. Here are tips on how to watch it: https://go.nasa.gov/3ii5i6y

Last night I set up 3 cameras facing different directions to maximise my chances of catching a meteor.
I was delighted to catch a bright meteor that left behind a persistent train. A trail of ionised gas that was disturbed by the meteors entry.

Now 6 months into my #analemma project, so I'm almost halfway through. Just got to fill in the gaps I missed due to the weather in February/March.

I jumped on #Venus a bit earlier today.
There's still quite a bit of a safety margin left in my setup, so MIGHT just be possible to get another image tomorrow.
Just over 5 degrees away from The Sun and 0.4% illuminated. #Astrophotography
