This image shows well Panstarrs' extraordinary spike, which is now six degrees long, although only two degrees is shown on this image. We cross through the orbital plane of this dusty comet on May 27th so the dust is seen edge on, hence the spike.... The small plume on the rhs is the normal dust tail, i.e. the dust blown away from the comet and so roughly in the anti-Sun direction. The spike is debris along the orbital plane. Martin says he can't say he recalls ever seeing an orbital plane spike or 'anti-tail' quite like this before. This comet is all dust and more dust!! The image was taken from itelescope.net's New Mexico base with a Takahashi FSQ 106 and SBIG STL11000M.... LRGB exposure of 300:60:60:60 secs.....

Mount Sharp on Mars from Curiosity Rover

Rising above the present location of NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, higher than any mountain in the 48 contiguous states of the United States, Mount Sharp is featured in this new image from NASA's Curiosity rover. It is a pair of mosaics assembled from dozens of telephoto images and shows Mount Sharp in dramatic detail. The component images were taken by the 100 mm focal length telephoto lens camera mounted on the right side of Curiosity's remote sensing mast, during the 45th Martian day of the rover's mission on Mars (Sept. 20, 2012). The location is also called Aeolis Mons, in the center of Gale Crater and it rises more than 3 miles (5 kilometers) above the crater floor location of Curiosity. The lower slopes remain a destination for the mission, though the rover will first spend many more weeks around a location called "Yellowknife Bay," where it has found evidence of a past environment favorable for microbial life.

The International Astronomy Show

The BAA had a stand at the inaugural International Astronomy Show held at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre near Leamington Spa on May 17th and 18th.

There was a great turnout with most of the UK equipment sellers exhibiting in the hall, and a few from overseas too.

The BAA stand was manned on Friday by Ann Davies, Callum Potter, Geoffrey Johnstone, Roger Pickard and David Arditti, and on Saturday by Ann Davies, Callum Potter, David Boyd, Mike Frost and Alan Lorraine. Much thanks goes to all for making the event a big success.

Here are a few photos.

The less spotted Martin Mobberley

Away from his usual habitat, Martin Mobberley was spotted around the exhibition, promoting his new book about the life of Patrick Moore: “It Came from Outer Space Wearing an RAF Blazer!: A Fan’s Biography of Sir Patrick Moore

A busy time at the BAA stand

Lots and lots of scopes on view
