Who is The StarGeezer?
Stargeezer Astronomy is all about enjoying the night sky. We present Astronomy enrichment programs in Indiana and Kentucky, and blog on everything from celestial events, our nights under the stars, astrophotography and using our “toys” (the scopes, eyepieces, cameras and mounts).
“The Night Time is The Right Time”
You don’t need a lot of equipment to start enjoying astronomy tonight! With a good book, star map or planisphere it’s easy to start learning your way around the night sky and the constellations. Today, there are only 88 recognized constellations and here in the northern hemisphere we can only see about half of them. Some constellations very hard to miss, others are much more obscure. You probably already know constellations like Ursa Major (the Big Dipper), Orion (the Hunter), Gemini (the Twins) and Scorpius (the Scorpion).
