Members may have noticed that theuse of colour in the BAA Journal has

increased in recent months. This has be made possible by the generous

support of those companies who have contributedby advertising their

products in its pages.



The continuation of this support will depend on how muchbusiness these

advertisements attract. We therefore urge members whenever they purchase

a product that has been advertised in the Journal, to take the effort to

point out to the supplier that the Journal is where they saw it

advertised. This will encourage repeat business and ensure their ongoing

support.

Grazing occultation of Jupiter tomorrow night

Tomorrow night (Saturday January 26) will be a good opportunity to compare

the brightness of two of the brightest objects in the sky. For a few minutes

around 6pm the Moon will occult jupiter as seen from some parts of the UK.



For observers south of approximately 53.5 degrees latitude Jupiter will be

very close to the Moon's southern limb but it will not be occulted. If you

live north of 54.5 degrees Jupiter will be hidden entirely. From Edinburgh,

for example, the occultation lasts from 1752 to 1817. On the dividing line

Jupiter will graze the limb of the Moon.



A picture of the event (courtesy of Guide 7) as seen from Lancaster at

1810UT can be found on the BAA website at

http://www.britastro.org/jupiter_20020126.jpg.
