SummerSkyTonight2014

Take a tour of the summer evening stars, constellations, planets and deep sky objects. After a timelapse sunset at University Lake in Baton Rouge, find Venus at twilight then explore the zodiac. Identify Saturn and Mars then visit these planets up close. Among the zodiac constellations Sagittarius and Scorpius are many glowing clouds of gas called nebulae. The story of the summer sky is told through the lens of star birth and star death, both of which happen inside of nebulae. Experience the formation of the Ring Nebula from the death of a sun-like star, then witness the formation of a new star inside the Trifid Nebula.
