2022 Handbook Errata

Please note the following errata to the 2022 BAA Handbook.

P3 - November 8 should be 'Total lunar eclipse - not visible from the UK', not a partial solar eclipse.

P24 - Venus superior conjunction is blank when it should be 22nd October 2022 as per the Sky Diary on page 5.

P35 - The Lunar Libration charts were transposed. A replacement is available for download and printing as needed from the Handbook area of the website: https://britastro.org/handbook

Venus Conjunctions

Please note the following corrections to the Venus conjunctions on page 24 of the 2022 Handbook.

Venus Superior Conjunction
Should read “Superior Conjunction: Oct. 22” not “Superior Conjunction: -”
This is correct in the Sky Diary – page 5
Actual UT time of Venus superior conjunction - 2022 Oct 22 21:17

Venus Inferior Conjunction
Should read “Inferior Conjunction: Jan. 9” not “Inferior Conjunction: Jan. 8”
This event is omitted from the Sky Diary – should be page 4
Actual UT time of Venus inferior conjunction - 2022 Jan 9 0:48

I've created a PDF of errata on the Handbook webpage.
