Observing Monday 25th March

>> Wednesday 20th March is full Moon, it’s called the ‘Worm Moon’ if you follow the old farming traditions, earthworms are supposed to start leaving their burrows! It also happens to be the Spring Equinox when the Sun crosses the celestial equator heading North
>> The general forecast for tonight is mostly cloud and with the full Moon it will be too bright for much useful Observing.
>> On Monday 25th the group due to visit the Observatory has cancelled, so we will hold an open house observing session provided it is clear. The Moon will not rise until around midnight so it will be a much better evening, provided the clouds stay away. At the present moment the forecast looks good.
>> So enjoy the Equinox, look forward to the increasing Day length, but watch out for those earthworms!
>> Updates will be posted on the BAS Twitter feed on Monday evening.
