Mars Night at the Old Down Inn, Emborough, Wednesday 9th April 2014


The Mars night was another great WMA event. Hosted at the Old Down Inn, who provided meals for those who wished to eat. Chris gave another interesting talk, centered around the red planet, Mars, which was amazingly clear.

A number of members kindly set up their kit in the beer garden, for observing after the talk. Great views of Mars, Jupiter the Moon and a number of other objects.

We were also graced with a bright pass of the ISS followed closely behind by the Progress M23M cargo craft which had been launched earlier that day.
