The sky at night (meteors, Iridium flares, the moon)


Recommended Posts

We got a brilliant view of the eclipse from the East Voe of Scalloway. Pity I was too busy getting everyone organised to go out to have time to take photos. :cry:


According to this story




It is the first total lunar eclipse in three years and the first to fall on the Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year - in nearly 400 years.

I know its the time of year for such things (allegedly), :wink: but what's the very bright "star" in the east just now?


I'm assuming its probably some planet. Its best seen later in the night and early morning. By around 6 or 7am its getting pretty low in the sky, in the approx ESE or SE by E as seen from the Ness.
