An Evening with Mars – 12th November 2005

Mars The weather did not look promising as we gathered at High Elms for a public observing session, so Greg stepped in to keep us amused and informed by giving us a short talk on Mars and its place in the Solar System. After his talk we had a quick look outside, and as Mars was just about visible through the thin cloud, Rick set up his telescope in a dark corner of the Nature Centre garden, and visitors took turns to see what they could see. Some were able to get brief clear views of the planet before the clouds again thickened. Jeff and Mirriam ran a quiz during the latter part of the evening, but the clouds could not be persuaded to part.
