Default Keep looking up!!

From time to time there are events which pass most of us by without even knowing it......without looking up.

So as a passive astro observer I (we) members will update this thread as cool stuff happens above.

Tonight a super moon and eclipse all in one..

Were you able to capture any good pictures of this event? It was very cloudy where I was here in FL. But I could see it a little bit.

No I did not take any photos because the camera was not suited for this.
However there are many super high quality photos on the internet to view.
I like these kind of events because you can go outside and sit in a chair and watch it unfold.

So if your like me and have to commute to work in the dark in the morning...... look to the EASTt...You will see three planets in our solar system aligned in a row.
This does not matter where you are.......you will be able to pick them out

A rule of thumb is.......at dusk or dawn, the brightest NON TWINKLING objects in the sky are planets.

FACT: The first bright "stars" in the evening that one see's are usually a planet, as well as the last ones you see in the morning.

I used to sit on the roof of our house when I was a kid with my telescope........man it was cold lol. Coolest thing I saw was the Andromeda galaxy, and by accident, I was just moving the telescope around. It's actually very large when viewed compared to the planets but so faint it's hard to detect with the eye.

Go figure, the clouds started rolling in Sunday night.

I did see one at 2am Saturday morning. I had thought it was just a random one until you posted this.

Look up! An asteroid will be zooming past Earth on Christmas Eve - ScienceAlert

I don't have a telescope so no asteroid for me but the full moon is interesting. Hasn't been one on Christmas while I've been alive.

This is one of my favorite ways to look at stuff.....

Get a pair of binoculars and favorite chair/pillow and lay on your back on the driveway and get comfortable....and look up.
Most stuff which I will post will be is no scope needed.......keeping it simple!

It is amazing how much "stuff" you will see moving across the sky.


Almost me too.....Seeing a full moon on Christmas
Last time was in 1977......
next .... 2026 then 2045 then 2083......by then I'll dust in the wind.

Bookmark it and enjoy.......LOL
