Late #August Sky, Beautiful #StarClusters, Last of the #Perseids

Listen to this article

In this video, Dr. Jim Daly of Astronomy For Change discusses remaining viewing options for the Perseid Meteor Shower and the mid-to-late August Sky, highlighting those constellations and objects of interest that are receding from view with the close of the season. The constellations discussed include Bootes, The Herdsman, Canes Venatici, The Hunting Dogs, Hercules and Scorpio, the Scorpion. We present 4 star clusters, two open or “Galactic” Clusters and two Globular Clusters respectively: M (Messier)-6, M-7, M-3 and M-13, the last of which was discussed in a previous video.

A limited discussion of Amateur telescopes was presented by Dr. Daly. We will be producing a video soon that will take an in-depth look at the various types of telescopes, their configurations and expectations.
