Hello everyone: people of Baton Rouge and around the world. This is just an update for what is going to happen periodically through 2016 on this blog. Here at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum and the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, we will be producing a series of astronomical updates that will be appearing both on our big planetarium dome and on this blog. Most of the significant astronomical events will be discussed here in detail and accompanied by an original video production.
These videos will, for the most part, display what you will see in your Baton Rouge sky and where you can find what is being discussed.
Sometimes there will be astronomical events outside the US. We’ll cover those, too. For example, the total solar eclipse coming up on March 9th will be discussed this coming Monday. Look forward to a video detailing what the eclipse will look like from Indonesia and what it will look like from space.
So, for all upcoming blogs labeled “The Sky Tonight Update” you can find not only information on what is coming up in your sky, but a video production of that very event as well.
Come back soon, we’ll be having many of these updates–as well as other blogs about interesting astronomical events–throughout the coming year.
