After a brief hiatus, we’re back with our Virtual Star Parties, broadcasting our view of the night sky into a live Google+ Hangout. Last night was a special occasion, as astronomer Mike Phillips broadcast our first view of the planet Neptune. And then, just to show off, he found Uranus too. It was amazing to see those objects in our hangout for the first time. We’re now just waiting for Mercury to complete the whole set. Who will be the first to show us Mercury?
