Stargazing under Eilat’s summer sky

The Summer sky is amazing with clarity you can only get in Eilat.

On my way out to work in the morning, I have begun seeing the moon high in the sky. that means that it is rising later at night and that the sky is dark and perfect for viewing early in the evening.
Our programs are now beginning at 9:00pm and lasting until about 10:30,although I have had some very enthusiastic guests lately and we have ended later.
Right now besides my regular (regular but always changing) "Star is Born" program, we see Jupiter just beyond Zenith at 21:00 with Mars rising in Scorpius followed by Antares, the Anti Mars and everybody's favorite Saturn.
Friday nights I will have an extra program at 11:00 that will get us even deeper into the Summer sky including the wonders in the Summer triangle.
Join me for a Stargazing adventure.

התחרות על שימוש מחדש (Reusability) במשגרים מתחממת! חברת בלו אוריג'ין (של היזם ג'ף בזוס) הנחיתה לראשונה את המשגר שלה בנובמבר - וביצעה עמו טיסה נוספת אתמול. זו הפעם הראשונה בה נעשה שימוש חוזר במשגר שמסוגל לשגר לחלל (לטיסה תת מסלולית, יש להדגיש).
