Yesterday Feb 15, a small partial Solar Eclipse, seen from the deep southern hemisphere. This event coincided with this month's New Moon. In the coming days, watch for the waxing crescent Moon to return to the evening sky, a little thicker & setting a little later each day

The bright ones can be seen for hundreds of km. The fireball associated with the Buzzard Coulee meteorite fall in west SK in 2008 was seen from Manitoba to Montana to Fort Mac.

Wow. How bright was the meteor relative to say, a full or half moon? And what is your estimate of the interval between the visual and the audio?

Ever wonder where did gold come from? Ever wonder what all that buzz about gravitational waves was about? Come to tonight's monthly meeting to find out more about both, & the connection between them. Public welcome!

In all the furor, I missed the fact that Japan just orbited a satellite with the SMALLEST rocket ever… only 10 meters long! We are entering the Golden Age of Space…

It may be snowing just now,but it's still possible to observe that most forgiving of astronomical objects,the Moon. Indeed,some of its large-scale features ("The Man in the Moon") can be spied with the naked eye,right through the snow clouds. See for yourself!
