4/6/23 at 7pm on Zoom: Tour of the Spring Night Sky & The Sky Down Under

Tour of the Spring Night Sky/The Sky Down Under

by Chris Morisette

Spring weather in SE Texas can be quite variable. It can and does bring some very pleasant weather for astronomy and camping out at the HAS dark site. Nights temps are crisp and dark hours are fairly long.

The night sky shows off its great variety in springtime! Winter constellations are setting in the west at evening twilight and the galaxy rich constellations are overhead. As a bonus, the summer Milky Way presents itself to those observing into the wee hours of the morning!

Novice Chairperson Chris Morisette will lead us on a tour of the spring night sky. He will give us tips on preparing to observe the spring night sky and point out several objects available for observation that should not be missed.

In addition, Chris will share some highlights of his recent trip to New Zealand, and highlights of the night sky there.
