Pat Shingleton: "Looking Above..."
Pat Shingleton's Weather News Friday, November 15, 2013
Access to weather related items and issues are certainly more accessible than years ago. Search engines readily provide immediate answers and references. For many years I have used Roger Mansfield's Skywatcher's Almanac for everything celestial. It's a computer generated local Sun and Moon calendar in addition to serving as a quick reference guide to the predictable phenomena of the night sky. The Table of Contents includes Eclipses, Occultations, Planetary Phenomena, Visibility, Explanations and a Skywatcher's Timetable. While walking the dog one evening my daughter, Katie, shared a "phone-app" she acquired called "Night Sky" that identifies astrological objects. Roger's Almanac is all inclusive, also available on-line at http://astroger.com.
