Virtual Star Party – January 27, 2013: The Hand-Guided Moon Edition

Cruddy winter weather kept most of our astronomers indoors, but a few spots opened up in the clouds this week – enough for three telescopes. We had great views of a recently full Moon, Jupiter, and several clusters, nebulae and galaxies, including Andromeda, the Blue Snowball, the Triangulum Galaxy, and more.

We were joined by a new astronomer this week, Russell Bateman, who kept us entertained with his fantastic hand guiding skills, keeping the Moon in view for the duration of the Hangout.

Astronomers: Stuart Forman, Dave Dickinson, and Russell Bateman.

Commentary:Scott Lewis

Host: Fraser Cain

We run the Virtual Star Party every Sunday night as a live Google+ Hangout. Want to find when it’s happening next? Just circle the Virtual Star Party page on Google+. Visit the Universe Today YouTube channel to see an archive of all our past events.
