    Default Eyes on the Sky: April 9 thru April 16



    Venus may be moving away from the Pleiades this week, but it is still moving through Taurus the Bull, so check out the other superb open cluster there, the Hyades. Also, Saturn reaches opposition later this week, so it's a great time to point a small telescope at the ringed planet and try to spot some of it's brighter moons as well.

    You're welcome everyone; my pleasure, and thank you so much for watching. I'd be most grateful if you'd consider sharing these on social networking sites like Facebook and such, as my goal is to educate about what people can easily see in the night sky, and hopefully put the idea of light pollution on their radar.

    I have a new segment I'm adding with next week's video to help move that idea forward, without taking up more than about 10 -12 seconds of time to do so.
