Very good Stargazing Weather for Sligo

Very good Stargazing Weather for Sligo

There will be good viewing in Sligo on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of October, Obviously the viewing on Saturday is the Sligo Rovers match against St. Pats.

Come on Rovers the long wait is nearly over.

Very Good Stargazing Weather for Sligo

The conditions for stargazing on Sunday will be excellent.  My plan is to try and spot the Pleiades also known as the seven sisters. This star cluster is about 440 light years from earth, and although they appear faint to the naked eye some of the stars in the cluster are 1000 times brighter than the sun.

This star cluster will be best seen around midnight, and is located above my three amigos from the other nights viewing Alnath, Jupiter and Aldebaran
