No luck this morning unfortunately.

My roofline opposite is at elevation 15.8 degrees.
I tried a bit later, but still no luck.

Probably should have used a binocular with better glare control. The glare was very bad and the whole experience very unpleasant.
It was hazy with a lot of moisture in the air, although well away from the Sun the sky seemed very clear.

07.50UT 240deg 8kn cloud few 14,000ft visibility 30km 2C TDP -1C 1025.5 hPa.

Regards,
David

Rather annoyed that I missed this for the following reason. I noticed Venus above the rooftops with the unaided eye, and thought that it was a long way south now and low down, but forgetting that Jupter would be nearby, I did not go as far as to look any closer or from a different location. Currently dog-sitting and having returned later from the papershop the sky was quite bright and did not think to get a scope out. Had I done so they would have been easily seen. And of course it was cloudy tuesday morning.grrr! regards maf

Never mind Mike, noticed the beautiful crescent Moon with Earthshine at 4am this morning. Couldn't sleep because of a cold. In 42x18 the terminator was on the edge of M Humorum with Agarthachides, Hippalus, Doppelmayer and Gassendi all around and the Montes Jura made a mysterious looking dark smudge on the terminator to the North.
