Latest BAS Images

Slightly belatedly, and with apologies to Bob Wickens, Peter Hudson and Kevin Earp, we have some images on the Blood Moon Eclipse that Bob shot while on a cruise in Costa Rica (jealous? us??) while Kevin submits an excellent capture of the recent comet 46P/Wirtanen as it passed close by The Pleiades. Peter imaged the conjunction of Mars and Neptune 1 day apart in early December, and it perfectly shows the separation between the two planets over the course of 24 hours. Enjoy!
