Starry sky image - 10.5.2021 at 00.00 - 10.5.2021 at 01.00 Kuusamo Observation number 98281

Visibility I / V

We are now living in ‘miserable times’ in terms of astronomy, at least here in the north. But when the night was especially clear I decided to try star waving. Arcturus was best seen, followed by Vega as a good second and a hint of Altair. To my surprise, in the bright northwest direction, there was also a ‘twinkle’ and in Capellahan it was there. Finally, Spica from the south. To the west the window was closed. Something might have been found there as well. Definitely my last observation this season, unless then ... Go and know.
