SAS Entertain Whixall Moss Visitors

Two dozen stargazers returned to Whixall Moss, in the wilds of north Shropshire to make the most of the dark skies available. As is usual at these events the clouds rolled in, intending to spoil proceedings. Forever prepared, a presentation touring the spring sky whetted the appetite of the eager gathering. Eventuay venturing outside, we were treated to clearings in the sky. We could then apply our freshly gained knowledge as we identified many of the northern constellations, together with a range of bright open clusters. The king of the planets (Jupiter) put on a good show while we could observe the near full moon through the handful of telescopes that SAS members had brought along. Needing a warm drink the satisfied visitor disappeared into the increasingly murk evening, inspired to dust off the favorite instruments.
