Telescopic Planets, Clusters and a Comet

August is NOT the End of Summer


Lately August has started to take on the feeling of autumn. Kids are dreading going back to school, the stores are stocking new school supplies, football teams are thinking about two-a-day practices.  Yet despite all the back to school hype, August sits firmly and completely in the season we know as summer.    The weather is still warm, the nights are pleasant and some of the best observing targets are almost directly overhead  during prime viewing hours.

Globular Clusters, the Ancient Outliers

July2013 Chart

By Rod Kennedy

When the summer makes the days unbearable, we often seek refuge indoors.  Anyplace from museums to the local library can be a welcome oasis from the heat of the sun.  However, in Wyoming the evenings are often pleasantly cool and comfortable; a great opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the night sky.  The challenge is to find something worth observing. Fortunately the southern half of the July evening skies offers a wealth of interesting targets for telescopes and binoculars.  Among these gems are the globular clusters and they are some of the oldest structures in our galaxy.
