Sunday 6th July - Pedros

A Hot Muggy meeting with muggy cloud. Inspite of this we observed Saturn and Jupiter as well as our favorites for this time of the year- the Jewel box and Omega Centauri. Alpha Centauri also resolved well into its apparent binary system.

The Southern Cross was not easy to resolve and it also took us a while to see the Jewel Box.

Last month was definitely the better month to observe this constellation, but we have a teapot to look forward too!!

We also had a quick look at Scorpio but the heat and humidity persuaded us for a finish at Durty Reids
