I'm back again!

I've not been doing much with astronomy the last month or so, but I'm going to start back up again (now that it's starting to get cold, of course!).

In any case, the stars have definitely moved a fair amount since I last payed a whole lot of attention. BAD Laura BAD! I noticed the Pleiades rising in the east, so we should be seeing Orion before too long.

Ah, yes, Orion. Easily recognizable with his belt of three stars. There's some really cool things in Orion - for example, the Orion Nebula. But more on that later!

I think the sky is clear tonight, so I'm gonna take a peek and see what I can see east of Pegasus.

  1. Yeah I've been noticing Pleiades too from my backyard at night. Here's a pretty cool picture of it if you're interested
    I've seen Orion too coming up around 11ish maybe??
    Yay for winter constellations.
