Astronomy Events in February 2018

At the start of the New Year, if the clouds clear, why not grab your binoculars and take a look at the sky.

Here are some suggestions.


7 Feb: Conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter

15 Feb: New Moon. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the
Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. A good time to observe faint objects
such as galaxies and star clusters.

19 Feb: M81 is well placed
