I agree with the above. This is literally the most well laid out format for monthly events on the interwebs. Thank you for always remembering us. :food-smiley-004:

Thank you for this Dave! ...Jupiter and Saturn are 2.1 degrees apart as December begins and lie within one degree of one another from December 12th through December 29th. During the first week of December, the two planets set by 8:30 p.m. local time. A waxing crescent Moon passes three degrees south...

Yeah, I can't say for sure if I knew what the official status was. But I agree it seems like we've heard about neutrinos enough times in the past to assume it to be true. Good article, though. It specified a few details I wasn't aware of, like the relation of the CNO cycle. Thanks for posting!

Sounds great, Erik! Glad you are getting some awesome views. I am trying patiently, weekly. Hoping to make the most of my 10" newt and binoviewer combo for the approach this season. That setup is a planet killer for sure, but I need skies that are better than Pickering 1. LOL

So, my daughters joined me as the night progressed, all of us appreciating the incredible transparency that a notable cold snap brought to the northeast. I haven't seen a clear sky like this, without a moon no less, in a long time. It was nice to set up the 12" dob. Man I love that scope, and I can'...

I am struggling to focus enough to read all of the posts of this ancient thread. LOL! That is a seemingly random question...of which I actually have no answer.

Sadly I missed Hale-Bopp, hadn't been bitten by the astronomy bug quite yet. Nor did I catch Hyakutake. For me this rates as one of the better comets, but then I was able to catch it on a dark moonless night where brightness estimates ranged between mV 2.0 and 3.0 among amateurs. The shape is classi...

Sorry man. Maybe you'll get lucky and catch it as it continues to linger and slowly fade. Should be doable with bigger binos, or of course a large scope for the next month at least, just maybe not as bright. I did see it again last night in so so transparency with the 15x85. and at an estimated mV o...

What a great night! I have to give credit to my older daughter for bringing this comet to my attention a couple weeks ago. When I researched the track it seemed this weekend would be ideal for us to catch it, post perihelion. As an evening comet the timing is more conducive to everyone’s schedules. ...

Erik, have you seen it yet? I just caught it with my family in the back yard. It's actually in a perfect spot to view for us. Clouds were beginning to move in after sunset so it never really got particularly dark before the clouds took over. That said, we were able to see it with a clear dust tail i...

Thanks for starting this thread. I’ve been patiently waiting since last week for it to be an evening comet. Much lower horizon for me to the west and no moon! Fingers are crossed the clouds move out...!
