Click on this months chart for a list of events and objects visible
with the naked eye, in binoculars and small telescopes!
The monthly charts and lists will include such things as the phases of the moon, where the
planets are, meteor shower info and some well placed deep sky objects. Meteor showers are
linked to the International Meteor Organization's calendar page. Some easy surfing of this site
yields probably more info than you can handle about meteors and "shallow sky" stuff. :-)
The deep sky lists are limited to Messier's catalog objects and some of the better named DSO's within 1 hour of right ascension either side of the meridian at 10:00 pm in midmonth, in the interest of space. I've also included a link to the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, (SEDS). This site has tons of info on Messier objects and other DSO's, too. I guess any more info you need could come from Sky and Telescope or Astronomy magazine, or drop me an email or note on my guest book and I'll get back to you. Happy hunting!
