Mowsehouse, I saw the Great Conjunction on Monday night (the Southern Hemisphere, east coast of Australia) It was easily seen with the naked eye.

I could just about make out the ring around Saturn with my binoculars, but it was difficult to keep it steady.

My daughter had a telescope and said she could see Jupiterís five moons and the ring around Saturn. Quite amazing really - puts us and our problems into perspective somewhat I think.

It has been viewable for a number of days but Monday was when the planets were the closest.  :)

Thanks for that Ruskie.
Lucky you.
Just one more reason not to be in Uk, because everywhere else on the globe manages everything better.....even the cloud cover!  :'(

I have seen stunning photos, but that's not the same.
Luckily I am realistic enough not to have been expecting clear skies in my part of England at this time of year.

Youíre very lucky Ruskie to be able to see clearly....like MH just seen pictures... they have said it could still be visible up,to Christmas Eve which would be nice as I think weíll have clear skies up my end of the country....
Our friends behind us have a large telescope so Iíll bet heíll see it....in more normal times weíd go round and have a look but sadly not at the moment 😥

We were just lucky mowsehouse - if it had been the next night we wouldn't have seen a thing. But yes, keep an eye out - on a clear night you might spot them.

OH has an app of some sort for his phone which tells you which planet is which. I spotted them immediately, but he had to check his "app" to make sure I was right.  ::)

I had read 'directions' explaining where they would be located and which was which. Apart from the moon there wasn't much else up there.

So frustrating to have a telescope near by that you unable to take advantage of Caroline.  :(
