Hi, here attached my last souvenir
Object Name (Jupiter, Moon, Venus and Hyades)
Object Type (occultation)
Location (Néoules Var France)
Date (2012 July 15th)
Media (graphite pencil for the moon, and watercolor for the dolmen sketch)
So early! I observed with a friend of mine from 3h to 5h AM local time.
Close to Néoules, we have a good place with a good sky to observe the rising of Sun, Moon and planets.
The telescope I use to sketch is a Bresser 1000/102.
The two first sketches were made in this place; the watercolour was made just after the occultation, 5 km further. How many occultation this megalithic dolmen has seen?
On the watercolor, we can see the planet Venus and perceive the Hyades open cluster with Aldebaran
That was very early but,… what a wonderful spectacle !
