RASC National Society: The Insider's Guide to the Galaxy - The Inner Planets (ONLINE)
Join us online to learn basic astronomy that you can do on your own from your backyard!
We'll give you the tools to learn astronomy on your own at home, along with some observing goals to try.
All you need is your computer! A pair of binoculars will help, but are not necessary.
Sessions are always on Tuesdays at 3:30pm ET, but frequency of sessions changes.
The Inner Planets - Chris Vaughan
Mercury will be at maximum visibility in early evening this week, where it will shine below brilliant Venus.
We'll explain the dance of the inner planets in the evening sky, talk about conjunctions, elongations, and transits, and share some tips for safely viewing the inner planets.
Galileo did it - so you can, too!
