Looking for an observation site

Hi,

I am quite new to astronomy I have done some observing from my back garden but most of the sky is blocked out the house and as the local council has put in new lights LED bright ones too it is getting very difficult to see anything.

So I am looking for a site away from the house. What is the best way of finding a site and does any one know any good ...

What did I just see?

Hi All,

I often watch the sky at night and have not seen anything like this before. It was 4:04am today, for reference I'm located just south of Cambridge uk. I was watch the stars very clear and cold night and there was a star located between Vega and Etamin, it was about the same brightness as Vega so quite noticeable, it was there for around 40 seconds to a minute without moving, then it ...

Loosing the this of Sir Patrick

Hi,

I am concerned that TSAN is loosing its roots and becoming overly engulfed as the playground for promoting equipment and cameras. If you want to become a photographers magazine then change the mag name and allow the rest of us to move onto what SPM meant the programme to be i.e accessible for anyone interested in the night sky.

The idea that some person on a normal wage can finance camera equipment kicking in ...

Classic Sky at Night Programmes

Just a quick request

I'd be very happy to see more classic "Sky at Night" programmes on the cover CD.

They are interesting and nostalgic on so many levels, covering as they do, historic moments in astronomy and space research and for showing how our knowledge of the cosmos is evolving. It's also a pleasure to see the boundless energy and enthusiasm of Sir Patrick in his prime.

I watched a star disappear

Last night, 10/22/18, in New Hampshire, around 9:30 pm I think I saw a star dissapear. I dont know which direction I was looking, but the moon was diagonally to my left and forward if that makes sense. The star was directly forward. There were some clouds in the sky but there was a big open circle with this star in the middle. I started saying that classic "star light star bright" rhyme and I ...
