Well, earlier I noticed Venus looking very bright to my South West but lots of cloud about, Jupiter was hidden from view and not much else visible at that time.

Just been outside to put the bin out for the morning and noticed that Jupiter was occupying almost the same spot in the sky as Venus was earlier. Took the time to look around and saw a meteor flash by more to the South than Jupiter but at a similar height in the sky. Unusually it didn't leave a trail of any sort, at first I thought it was a satellite but the speed across the sky was more akin to a meteor.

To the East the near full moon is lighting up the sky outshining many objects.

May go out later for another look around, I hope to get the main scope out over the Christmas holidays.
