Twitter MoonWatch

As I write this, the Newbury Astronomical Society are hosting a MoonWatch event live on Twitter. This virtual star party started at 21:30 BST and runs for another hour. The Moon is looking pretty good right now and amazingly there is a clear sky here in Manchester. As well as the Moon, Saturn can be seen a handspan away from it.

Below is a picture of the Moon taken with my cheap and cheerful digital camera pushed up against an eyepiece of my 10x50 binoculars. Not the best image in the world but you can make out some crater rims on the terminator.
