About a week ago I listed the Messier objects from my observation notes, and said I might have missed a few. I’m now thinking I might have missed more than a few, because I’ve found some objects I didn’t list, in my recent constellation photos. So I’m putting the photos here.
But before that, here’s the Beehive Cluster last night, or Preasepe. Preasepe means ‘The Manger’ in Latin. According to Wikki.
And then there’s the Little Beehive cluster, in Canis Major, a constellation we had a talk on recently at the Wolverhampton Astronomy Society.
..and lastly M47. Which is in Puppis, a hardly visited constellation for me, but I got interested after reading ….
Puppis /ˈpʌpɪs/ is a constellation in the southern sky. Puppis, the Poop Deck, was originally part of an over-large constellation, the ship of “Jason and the Argonauts”, Argo Navis, which centuries after its initial description was divided into three parts, the other two being Carina (the keel and hull), and Vela (the sails of the ship). Puppis is the largest of the three constellations in square degrees. It is one of the 88 modern constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union.
