    Re: Mars near Zubenelgenubi

    Frank you wrote: round 11:00 UT on December 12 (tomorrow, 6am for US east coast observers) Mars will be about 12 minutes of arc away from Zubenelgenubi. The timing is not especially critical, and there's no particular importance to this. It should make for a pretty sight, and if you've never managed to identify that nav star, here's your chance. Mars is in the southeast as morning twilight begins.

    Thanks for the notification.  ‘Navigator’ said the pair ought to be just about visible above the trees in UK in the south east just before dawn at 07.00 UTC, and the forecast said clear skies.  As Zubenelgenubi has been on my ‘must do’ list for some time, I got up especially.  Unfortunately, cloud had moved in faster than forecast, and the sky was obscured, but please keep informing us of similar possibilities.  DaveP
