Did you know that there are many objects that you can see in the night sky that are not stars or planets? Did you know that many clusters or clouds of glowing deep space gas can be seen with the naked eye, and dozens more are visible with simple binoculars? Have you heard that some deep sky objects are so large and so bright that we can see them even if they are thousands of light years away, up to half the galaxy? And that there are even other galaxies that we can see with the naked eye? And what are the planets and constellations doing in our skies in October?
MSU St. Andrews’ next Virtual Family Astronomy Evening will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6. This free event will explore the topic “Deep Sky Objects: Wonders of the Night”.
