As requested by Pete and Paul at the BAA Winchester weekend, the Moon and the Beehive Cluster. Having missed the Lunar occultation's of the Beehive cluster due to attending a quiz night, myself and another member of Crayford AS headed for the observatory. Clear skies greeted us and gave us the opportunity to enjoy this close encounter.
