The Hyades, Pleiades, the Orion Nebula & Jupiter
January 14 2015
Just got a new telescope for Christmas and want something special to look at through
Here are four fabulous targets to aim at that will bring lots of enjoyment to both
beginners and more seasoned astronomers. They are all visible in the January night
sky (well, Jupiter will be from about 9:00).
The beautiful star clusters of the Hyades and Pleiades are a joy to behold in telescopes
of any size. You will see small patches of stars transform into veritable jewel
boxes. The Orion Nebula is a wonderful stellar nursery where new stars are being
born. And the mighty Jupiter with its four Galilean moons is always something special
to look at.
Come along and revise your star hopping skills and search for these spectacular objects
in the night sky.
Bring along any telescopes, binoculars that spotting scopes you have and share the
wonders of the January night sky.
If it is cloudy then don’t worry as we can simulate the experience on the computer
although nothing beats doing it for yourself.
