On the 14th of April 2018, some members of Astroclubul Bucuresti, Romania spent one night under the stars in Comana, Giurgiu County, Romania.

Participans: Cristian Stancu, Daniel Bertesteanu, Ioan Tudor, Andreea Timpea and Adrian Voinic.

The sky was covered around 25-30% with high altitude clouds. Temperature was 8-9 degrees Celsius and there was much humidity in the air, so we had to use heaters to remove condensed water from the mirrors and lenses.

We observed Jupiter alongside with its biggest four natural satellites and Saturn and Mars after 02:00 AM (GMT + 3).

We also made observations of Messier objects like M51, M101, M65, M66, NGC3628, M3, and M13.
