October and November Meetings

The weather these last two months hasnt exactly been THAT bad, after all it is the rainy season. Some nights have been relatively clear, enough for the meeting to have gone ahead, but of course, that wasnt the case on the two nights in question for the October and November Meetings.

Astronomically, Comet Holmes appeared lierally from nowhere in the Constellation of Perseus, I observed it on several occasions, once with the Societys 10 inch , it was very good in Binoculars too. I estimated it to be around Mag 2 but last night (13th) it seemed to be fading. No tail and not too much detail but a superb large "fuzzy" object.

Hopefully the weather will be much improved next month
