For stargazers and Northern Lights hunters, January 2015 will be a very exciting month. Combining stargazing via powerful telescope with your Northern Lights hunt is sure to deliver a lot more memorable experience. Read on to see what’s up with the planets, meteor showers and deep sky phenomena in the coming month.
On tonights tour, while patiently waiting for the Northern Lights, we spent our time observing some 30 or more astronomical objects.
Among them Jupiter and it’s moons, visible late evenings in December. Jupiter is the brightest object in the sky and spectacular to view in a powerful telescope. Jupiter’s red storm was easily visible tonight. With it’s band of red, white and blue Jupiter looked a bit like the Pepsi logo to us 😉
