Are you searching for an extended-forecast astronomy weather app?

  • James Hall wrote a review for Scope Nights that may be just what you’re looking for.
  • Brian Cuthbertson’s January Observing Targets article provides information on three objects to shoot for this month, how to locate them, and what you can expect to see. Plus, Erika Rix included observation reports and sketches for two of those targets.
  • Alan Carruth shares a section of Scientific American about the Great Solar Eclipse of 1869.
  • Kieran Mulvaney, NASA’s Space Place, writes about The Big Picture: GOES-R and the Advanced Baseline Imager.
