Not feeling Christmassy? There's a 'humbug' skin too. 🙂

Mars / Neptune conjunction Fri 7 December

Recommended Posts


Didn't bother draging out the scope as the conditions are not great but did see Neptune in my 10x50 bins. I say saw but it is just on the limit of what I can see. The star HD217626 near Neptune was invisible to me at mag 8.5 but Neptune at mag 7.9 was just visible.

I take it looking at Mars , Neptune at 8.30 was at 5oclock , spotted in 15x70 Binoculars, I would have struggled to find that visually if it wasn’t for mars
