    Default Best Night Sky Events of February 2017



    It seems that Chris Vaughan of SkySafari Software has taken over the position formally held by Geoff Gaherty. who passed away on July 7th, 2016, from a kidney complication. Geoff was the content and layout editor for Starry Night. So, here is the latest list from Space.com. It provides information on several interesting observing opportunities throughout the month of February, with 21 pages of interesting pictures, maps, and information for this month. Find it here, at:

    I hope this helps in your observing plans and that it is useful to you. Thanks for looking, and the best of wishes for many clear skies.
