BinocularSky    1,712

The 6th anniversary edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready for these long midwinter nights. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have:

* Mira is brightening
* A lunar occultation of Aldebaran
* Uranus, Neptune and Iris well-placed in the early evening

So, if the sky is clear, grab your binocs (or small telescope) and head out to enjoy what nature has to offer us this month. And, more importantly, share it; people are often surprised by how much there is to see with even small binoculars.  I hope you find it useful with your binoculars (or small telescopes).

Please note that the charts are necessarily of low resolution, but clicking on them will take you to a higher resolution version.


To grab your (free!) copy, or to subscribe (also free) and receive it monthly, please go to http://binocularsky.com and click on the 'Newsletter' tab.

Interesting that the Regulus reappearance at 2213 on the 8th is visible from London, where moonrise is 2151, but not visible from central Ireland where moonrise is 2223.

Awesome, thanks Steve :)  I'm hoping to see at least some of those things with my new Helios Lightwing ED 8x42's that have just arrived :)
