 by Debbie Moran

Novice Committee Chairperson

Debbie Moran will discuss observing during the winter months. She will provide lots of good advice about planning your observing session and how to stay warm on those cold clear nights.

Observing during the winter months can be very rewarding. Earlier sunsets and longer nights mean that we can get a significant amount of observing time in the evening, and still get some sleep. The colder air holds less humidity which results in a darker sky, and better visibility of dimmer objects. It doesn't matter if you have binoculars, a small telescope or something more significant, there are many wonderful winter objects to behold. 

Debbie will highlight some of the gems of the Winter Sky. She tells us what to look for, where to find them. it and how to stay warm on those cold clear nights. Debbie will also explain the mythology behind many of the Winter Sky's fantastic sights.
