Dancing in the Sky


   Tonite, tomorrow night, and on.... the Moon will be accompanied by Jupiter, the biggest planet in our solar system. And not far away will be the mighty hunter, Orion and his nemesis, Taurus the bull. 

   The whole story is available from Sky and Telescope magazine, from  which I stole the above graphic. 

    But the weather forecast is for at least partly cloudy, at least where I am near Annapolis, Maryland. No problem! Click into the Slooh Space Camera website, whereat you will find, at appropriate moments, a telescope view of the whole thing as the Moon "eats" Jupiter the night of January 21. 

    Enjoy!  But if you miss it (busy dancing at the inaugural ball.... etc.), the principal dancers will be back on March 17th.
