I tried one of those scopes many moons ago a neighbour had, looked at Saturn's rings on it bluegoatwoods I put the italics on a post on this forum don't know how as never used them before didn't know how to turn them off either 😊
Pretty cool font play in the last few posts, huh?
And for anyone who's interested, take a look at your night sky about midnight local time. Maybe closer to 1:00 AM is better. Face roughly south. Toward your right hand you'll see Jupiter. Just about straight ahead is Saturn and toward your left hand is Mars. They're spread pretty wide right now. Jupiter is not too far from where the sun had set and Mars is not too far from where it will rise again.
All three are fairly low. But not low enough for the horizon to interfere. Jupiter is pretty easy to spot because it's bright. Saturn is the dimmest of the three right now. But it's pretty easy to recognize because of it's color. It's usually described as 'yellowish', but to me it has always looked more like gold or bronze. Mars is pretty easy because of it's definite redness.
This is a naked eye view I'm talking about here. No telescope necessary. And it's pretty.
They'll move over the course of time. I suppose Jupiter will be close to the sun and hard to see by winter. Saturn too not long after that. I'm guessing Mars will stay in evening view a good deal longer. But I'm not well versed enough in planetary movements to make any good predictions on that.
02 uubaru forester - replacing the valve cover seals on this evil lil 4 banger boxer engine. I gotta say though, i'm surprised how mechanic friendly they designed this engine! I never figured it would be quite this easy!
