Virtual Star Party – June 1, 2014: Paul brings his “A” game!

Host: Scott Lewis
Guests: Michael Phillips, Bill McLaughlin, Paul Stewart

Fraser’s out celebrating his dad’s birthday, so Scott’s helming tonight! (Happy Belated Birthday Mr. Cain!)

We’ve had a lot of cancellations and bad weather, so we’re going to make some changes to our schedule. We’re moving the VSP to once a month, and we’ll also add in astrophotos from observers, so that we won’t be as subject to the weather. We’ll also set up some special guests and events. Our goal is to never have to cancel again – so send us your astrophotos!

Tonight’s views and photos:
Saturn and 5 of its moons
International Space Station flyby (great catch!)
Night Sky from Fraser photo

Swan Nebula

We hold the Virtual Star Party every Sunday night, barring bad weather, as a live Google+ Hangout on Air. We begin the show when it gets dark on the West Coast.
