Virtual Star Party for Feb. 3, 2013: Superbowl Sunday Edition

While Fraser was flying back from North Carolina, the Virtual Star Party Team came together for a rousing night of astronomy – even during the Superbowl. There were many views of amazing deep sky objects, including the Orion Nebula, Horsehead Nebula, Blue Snowball, Jupiter, the “37 Nebula”, Rosette Nebula, Crab Nebula, Eskimo Nebula, and much more. It was an action-packed evening.

Astronomers: Mike Phillips, David Dickinson, Stuart Forman, Gary Gonella, Roy Salisbury.

Commentary: Nicole Gugliucci, Ray Sanders, Dr. Thad Szabo

Host: Scott Lewis

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.
