Resource: List of Night Sky Objects Visible in 2013

Postby laconte » Thu Nov 29, 2012 7:02 pm

Night sky viewings are a fun way to engage children and families in science! We recommend partnering with a local astronomical society to host a viewing event at your institution. The following is a list of interesting objects -- in addition to the Moon, of course! -- that will be visible in the evenings in 2013.

For step-by-step suggestions for hosting a night viewing event, please see the Explore links below:
