    Default Best Night Sky Events of January 2018



    Here is the latest report from Chris Vaughan of SkySafari Software, at Space.com. It provides information on several interesting observing opportunities throughout the month of January, with 23 pages of interesting pictures, maps, and information for this month. Find it here, at:
    https://www.space.com/33974-best-night-sky-events.html
    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 and a very Happy New Year.
