Sky Today Winter 2013
December 21, 2013 – March 20, 2014
Take a journey through the winter night time sky as seen by comet hunter Charles Messier. On his search for comets, Messier cataloged over one hundred nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters, many of which are found among the winter stars. Review the winter constellations, find the visible planets, and learn about how astronomers have studied comets over the centuries. In addition this show features an explanation of the demise of Comet ISON and video footage of the event captured by NASA spacecraft.
