BAA Observing Sections Mercury and Venus

Mercury and Venus Section Newsletter September 2019

Iā€™m pleased to announce the first issue of ā€˜Messengerā€™- the official newsletter of the BAA Mercury and Venus Section!

I hope to make these newsletters on a semi-regular basis with two/three per Venus elongation. The main aim of the newsletter is to share news and observations communicated to the Section by BAA members. The newsletter will also include articles concerning methods and techniques useful for observing the inner planets.

I would like to thank our Mercury Coordinator Chris Hooker for his article on the transit of Mercury coming up in November and Australian observer Anthony Wesley for his article on imaging the nightside of Venus.
