The next week is going to be overshadowed by the Moon a bit so it’s the perfect opportunity to do some Moon observing. There’s also a good chance to spot some interesting globular clusters.
This is the next iteration in showing how astrophotography can be for everyone. This time we demonstrate what we photographed with an iPhone.
Milky-Way.kiwi did some public outreach in the weekend with some sidewalk astronomy to show people the Sun through our solar telescope.
Next week, Mars and Jupiter are better positioned in the early morning, before dawn, to get some good views and it might be the last chance to see Mercury for a while. With the moon taking a break the opportunity exists for some great views of some of the more fainter objects.
If you’re going to take the plunge and buy a telescope then think carefully and weigh up all of the options and seek plenty of advice. This article covers some of the things I learned when I got my first reasonable telescope.
There is real science that you can contribute to right now, just with a smart phone or computer and your brain. You don’t need a PHD in astrophysics or cosmology or anything else, just some pattern recognition skills and a desire to contribute to a better understanding of the universe.
Have you ever been asked how far can you see in a telescope? This article helps answer that question and also covers how far you can see with the naked eye and a pair of binoculars.
Six questions that drive us nuts because we are asked these constantly. So here’s our different takes on the possible answers.
We’re doing a weekly update for the night sky, because there’s so many awesome things to look at and a monthly update just doesn’t do justice. This week the planets do a bit of a dance and we get to have a look at some deep sky objects that we haven’t seen for a while.
Another year is upon us and January offers a great opportunity to get out and observe the night sky after making the best of those long summer evenings.
We got the chance to take the binoculars out for their first run last night and had a great time dodging clouds to get some great views of some of our favourite objects.
Globular Clusters are a fascinating objects to view and can be easily seen with binoculars, they are groups of ancient stars huddled together and orbiting the central bulge of our galaxy.
Everyone knows about water on Mars, but very few people could brag like I can that they have discovered Hot Chocolate on Mars!
A description of how big the Solar System is with everyday items.
The evening sky is mostly devoid of visible planetary landscapes, with the exception of Mars and Jupiter late in the morning and Uranus and Neptune throughout most of the night (which you will need a telescope to see).
This is an astrophotographer-friendly blog, about what is in the night sky in August 2017.
