#ManyCulturesOneSky with SkyWatcher Leo T, featuring skywatching tips! Leo says look to the southwest horizon after sundown Friday and Saturday to "discover Jupiter, Saturn, the Moon, and Venus forming a long, ragged diagonal line in the south to southwest, from upper left to lower right. Then later, dazzling Orion peaks its head up above the horizon and rises in the SE above the sea cliffs, the Mountains, or the Red swells of Wingate sandstone...where the Magical, Orion Nebula resides...Thousands of stars are forming in the cloud of gas and dust. A mere 1,300 light-years away, binoculars will accentuate the experience even from your kitchen window! For cool photos and maps, visit Leo's FB page — click here.
