4 Sky Events This Week: Seven Sisters and a Stellar Sandwich

4 Sky Events This Week: Seven Sisters and a Stellar Sandwich – News Watch.

Another good week for stargazing. I hope it clears up around here soon!

I missed seeing Uranus. The weather was too cloudy while it was at a good altitude for me here. I am hoping to be able to see the Pleiades and the Hyades this week.

I can usually spot Taurus and Aldebaran. This time of year, it should be to the West after sunset. If you can find Orion, look to the right of the hunters bow and you should see a ‘V’, those are the horns of the bull “Taurus”. Both the Hyades and the Pleiades are located in Taurus.

Betelguese is usually easy to spot, it’s in the constellation of Orion. That’s one of the easiest constellations to spot. It should be even easier to see when it’s lined up like they say with the moon and Jupiter.

I’ll be checking it out when the clouds clear up!

  1. I’ve been bobbing around on the water for 6 weeks now, and I don’t think I’ve seen the stars yet. Awful crappy weather on the East Coast lately.

    • Yeah, I just got in the other day myself after about 6 weeks in the GOM. Pretty nasty weather out there too. I was working 1800-0600 for pretty much the whole time so never saw the sun. 🙁
      Rarely saw the stars.
      It has been a little better since I got home. Hope it keeps improving.
      Do you get to go home soon?
