Llyn Brenig Observation 1/9/2003

Myself and Richard B. enjoyed an observing session at Llyn B. on the Sunday night, an event of note was a bright fireball in the direction of ESE -ish, approx. mag. -4, that came to pieces with a bright flash, momentarily lighting the sky. Although the seeing was not as good as some other times, we enjoyed excellent views of Mars with both scopes, and also various deep sky objects. Just before packing up at around 03:30 Richard found Saturn lurking low in the east, and I noticed that Alnitak, or Zeta Orionis, had cleared the hillock on the Eastern side of the site, telling us that the Autumn is just about here.
