Very Good Stargazing Weather for Sligo
The conditionsÂ for stargazing on Sunday will beÂ excellent.Â 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 viewingÂ Alnath, Jupiter and Aldebaran
