Helpful Observing Hints
I really do hope this becomes a new series. There are many other characters to focus on and the Scottish settings just lend themselves to so many different stories. Can't wait for her next book! For sky watchers, Summer brings shorter nights and later sunsets. Still, it makes up for it by delivering many celestial delights, including easy-to-recognize constellations and favorite deep-sky objects. The annual Perseid meteor shower always puts on a fine display during warm August nights—especially when it falls on a moonless night. The Milky Way is most beautiful this time of year, arching its way across the sky from horizon to horizon like a hazy river of infinite stars! Hercules is a prominent summertime figure and the sky's fifth-largest constellation. The Greeks called him Heracles, but the Romans changed his name to Hercules. The constellation lies upside down just south of Draco's head and is easier to spot in darker skies than from the city since it has many dim stars. A "keystone" of four third and fourth-magnitude stars marks Hercules' torso. The famous globular cluster, Messier 13, is on the western edge.
The Ultimate Guide to Observing the Summer Sky (Northern
Van mij had het boek gerust nog zo’n 50 tot 100 pagina’s extra kunnen bevatten zodat de aantrekking tussen Morag en Gregor meer aandacht kon krijgen en het einde iets minder gehaast aan zou voelen.Lyra resembles an ancient stringed musical instrument similar to a harp. It is one of the 48 constellations the Greek astronomer Ptolemy cataloged in the second century. Look for it near Cygnus to the west and Hercules to the east. Its bright star, Vega, is the fifth brightest star in the sky at magnitude 0.03 and is one of the three bright stars that form the Summer Triangle asterism. The annual Lyrids meteor shower radiates from Lyra each April. Lyra is easy to find due to its proximity to Cygnus and the unmistakable bright star Vega. I loved this book SO much - not only because Jenny Colgan has written another lovely story and characters into existence further exploring an island in a world we already know and love (looking at you Little Beach Street Bakery) but because I got to read it on my first trip to the Northern Scotland and London! Summer Skies are a festival-style 3-piece who use guitar, drums and double bass to bring some of your favourite modern folk hits to life with foot-stomping, summery energy.
