Eyes on the Sky: Oct 8 thru Oct 14

Recommended Posts

Provided the clouds cooperate, this week should feature dark skies due to the Moon heading towards new. That makes it a great week for attempting some challenges, like Messiers in Aquarius, or a recently-brightened comet in Pegasus. If those prove a bit too much for your skies, Jupiter awaits in Taurus and Venus lights up the morning sky.

And this week on my homepage there is a detailed finder chart for Comet Hergenrother, with stars down to 12th magnitude to help you spot the dim 10th magnitude comet.

And as always, thank YOU for the kind compliments!

Anyone have any luck tracking down the comet? I saw it on Monday night with a 6" reflector - small and dim, but with direct vision. And anyone looking around in Aquarius should definitely have a look for M2 - it's quite a nice globular.
