6 Sky Events This Week: Taurids, Lagoon, and Neptune

6 Sky Events This Week: Taurids, Lagoon, and Neptune – News Watch.

I love watching the stars at night. I miss being able to see them clearly. Its just SO amazing sky watching from a ship at sea without all the light pollution we get at home.

Looks like the Taurids (meteors) will be the main thing to look for tonight. Venus and Cassiopeia should be bright and easy enough to spot, even with the lights of the city around and no need of a telescope.

I’ll be back at sea by Thursday but I don’t expect to be able to do much star gazing, there’s not much chance of a dark ship on a drilling rig (and we would not want that to happen!!!).

I’ll have to try and go sailing again when I get in from work. 😉

    • Yes, it used to be just stunning out at sea. I used to work on smaller vessels and ships where we would not have any lights on at night except the required running lights. Lately, I’ve been working on more stationary vessels like drilling rigs or construction barges and we stay lit up at night. It’s really too bright to see much of the starry sky. 🙁
