Jason looks to the Moon - 2016Tonight I was out observing with the little "Jason" 60mm/f15 refractor. It's a lovely scope for a quick peep at the heavens, or in my case this evening specifically the bright gibbous Moon.Whilst observing Clavius on the terminator, somewhere on the outskirts of our village I could clearly hear the cry of a cuckoo.Since our move to Crymych this was the first cuckoo that I have heard from our back garden.With the bright Moon above and the cry of the cuckoo, I was reminded of the poet Basho. Moonlight slanting by Matsuo BashoMoonlight slantingthrough the bamboo grove; a cuckoo crying. Sketching the Moon craters. Here's a further sketch from last Monday's Beltane evening lunar observations.It was beautiful outside tonight, not a cloud to be seen. Lets hope it's the first of many this year.Clear Skies everyone.
