The Provence sky - France - (RESULTS)

Postby Aquarellia » Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:27 am

We had 3 phases for this « SkySketchCrawl » for a total of 8 drawers
1 : Sketch of the solar disk with Louis and Emilie

Naked eye Sun's spot

Emilie : the Sun and the live around

Louis precision : the Sun's spot

And with a small solar telescope:

2 : We build an original Provencal footpath :
42km from the Sun to the end of our Solar system, the scale is 1/140'000'000 for the distances and for the planets volumes.

Here in Besse-sur-Issole and our model of Saturn. Sketches of Jannik, Yvan and Michel

Picnic along the footpath and the fresh Issole river.

3 : Astro sketch of the Occultation of Jupiter by the Moon
So early! I observed with Yvan from 3h to 4h AM local time.
Close to Néoules, we have a good place to observe the rising of Sun, Moon and planets.
Image
On this picture of my telescope we can see top-down Jupiter, the Moon and Venus
The two first sketches were made in this place;

the watercolour was made half an hour after the occultation, 5 km further. How many occultation this megalithic dolmen has seen?

We can see the planet Venus and perceive the Hyades open cluster with Aldebaran

That was very early but,… what a wonderful spectacle to end this 36th SketchCrawl !

Wow! Beautiful sketches and what an awesome idea for a sketchcrawl! I am jealous! This looks like it was a really great day! I love the river sketches as well.
