Welcome to Night Sky Info! This is a simple but very useful site, which gives clear information on planetary cycles and notable sky events, including details on the most important asteroids, comets, and meteor showers.
Although some of the information is intended for telescopic study, most of it is readily applicable to naked-eye observation and with finder maps included it is a perfect tool for all amateur astronomers, beginners and experts alike. Just drop in anytime, and find out what is up there to be seen when the Sun goes down.
Once you pick up your nocturnal marching orders, check out the many fine celestial wallpapers for your PC, and do not miss the instructive articles on selected astronomical topics. “The Night Sky This Month” section is updated monthly and new articles are regularly added, so be sure to come back often.
Now that you know about the web site, here is a little about me. My name is Emil Neata, I am 32 years old, and I enjoy reading about anything in the area of astronomy and space. Running this site is a great hobby and nothing like work!
As far as practicing astronomy goes, I am out observing from my dark-sky property whenever I find the time and weather permits it. I use a 6-inch homemade Dobsonian telescope, but from time to time I also bring a smaller 4.5-inch scope.
