Today EVSN discuss more about meteors – including the source of the Geminids meteor shower, asteroid Phaethon – as well as hot planets, hungry black holes, and how we’re working to uncover the identity of dark matter
Venus shines bright all month, Mercury makes a 3 week appearance, Mars hangs out with Gemini, Saturn continues its morning planet season, and the Lyrids have excellent observing conditions.
December skyguide and news with @AwesomeAstroPod. We JWST image of exoplanet atmosphere, ESA astronaut recruitment, Artemis 1, and more stories. Also Does the x-ray end of the electromagnetic spectrum have Fraunhofer lines like the visual part?
December ends the year on a high note, providing us glimpses of all the planets, the major ones being conveniently visible, an occultation of Mars, a modest meteor shower, and plenty of telescope targets.
Thanksgiving, 3 planets, a meteor shower (with the possibility of a storm), and a TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE. Prepare your instrument as November is going to be great!
Halloween month brings us some spooooooooky astronomy. Saturn and Jupiter soar ominously above, Mars creeps in, and rocks fall from the sky.
Time for space exploration news with @AwesomeAstroPod. We have Perseids meteor shower, NASA going back to the Moon, news from ISS. Also what would we like to see happen to the ISS instead of being deorbited? More at #365DaysOfAstro
2022 is the summer of morning planets! Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, and Venus are all quite prominent. Throughout the summer, get up early to see the weeks where the Moon drives by the planets, and maybe catch a few meteors in August, as some of the planets return to the evening skies.
Lunar Eclipse Month!!! Get ready for a May that boasts a wonderful blood moon and an array of morning planets all month long.
