How to find…
This is where you will find short videos on how to navigate you way around the night sky and find interesting things to look at.
In this little video we’ll show you how to find the beautiful Sombrero Galaxy. This is easy to spot and is a very distinctive looking galaxy. The galaxy is about 28 million light years away near the constellation of Corvus. We start by showing you how to find Corvus and assume you already know how to find the Southern Cross. If you don’t know how to find the Southern Cross then watch our video called “How to Find The Southern Cross”. Try this out and let us know if you found the Sombrero Galaxy.
This is the fourth video in the series and looks at the area between the Southern Cross and the Diamond Cross, along the Milky Way, in the Southern Sky. You’ll need binoculars to see the objects in this video.
This is the follow on video from Parts 1 and 2 and looks at the bit of sky between the Southern region and Orion, specifically between the False Cross and Sirius. You’ll also learn how to find M41 and M79.
This is the second video in a series to help you find your way around the Southern Sky at night. This video concentrates on the area between the Southern Cross and the Magellanic Clouds.
A quick video to show the basics of finding stuff in the night sky, no telescopes or binoculars required, just your eyes. This is part 1 so it’s just the basics of a few bright stars and two constellations in the Southern Sky.
Just by the False Cross in the Southern Sky are the two beautiful clusters Omicron Velorum and NGC 2516. These are very easy to find, you just have to navigate from the Southern Cross to the False Cross.
Vesta is at opposition in June and will be easy to spot with binoculars.
