TYPES OF OBSERVING
Beyond the Sim, Moon, and planets, the universe presents a treasure-trove of near and far celestial wonders.
Glittering star clusters, wispy nebulas, and misty galaxies abound in the dark regions between the stars. Intriguing star patterns, double and multiple stars, and the billowy star clouds of the Milky Way add to the night sky's boundless riches. Closer to home, Earth's upper atmosphere also puts on a show—with meteors, auroras, and meteorological phenomena such as noctilucent clouds, sun dogs, sun haloes, and the green flash.
