    Default Best Night Sky Events of February 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 February, with 19 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.

    Thank you Marshall. There is a lot of stuff going on in February up there. I'm looking forward to getting good views of Saturn and Jupiter again as the season moves. Thank you for posting Marshall.
