The Society met this evening to hear Peter's illuminating talk on celestial co-ordinates and the Moon's orbital pathways.We were fortunate to experience a clear night so some of us observed the moon at 70% illumination through the Meade and ODK.Mizar, Alcor ,M45, M42,the Double Cluster and Owl clusters were clear.M31 M81,M82 less so but still discernible in the moonlit milky sky.Those who attended enjoyed the evening at this location.I hope we can do this more often.
