August 2014 | What’s on view this month


1/08/2014 | The Summer Sky from Richard Pearson on Vimeo.

During August evenings the Milky Way is a fine sight. It begins from the constellations of Perseus in the NW, then passes up through the 'W' of Cassiopeia, Cygnus (The swan) high over head, and then passes down through Scorpio and into Sagittarius close to the southern horizon. There are also a large number of globular clusters on show, as well as some splendid deep sky objects. In this month's program we have some magnificent images taken by several of the very best astronomical photographers.

CREDITS: I am most grateful to Jeff Johnson, Vincent K.H. Cheng, Zlatko Orbanic, Oliver Czernetz, Terry Hancock, Noodle Van, Roberto Colombari, Robert Gendler and Alex Cherney for allowing me to use their splendid deep-sky images. The image of M57 was a corroboration between Trever Hancock & Fred Herrmann.
