Beginning astronomy : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

I have been a subscriber to a service called Skywatch for about a year. They have specialized in satellite paths and meteor showers as well as auroral displays. Now they are adding a new service that will focus on a different area of the sky each week and offer a SkyTour of that area, naming the different stars, constellations and planets. If anyone is interested in subscribing to this free service, they can do so at This is aimed at the beginner who would like to learn more about the night skies.

Thanks for the info! Kevin got a telescope for a Christmas gift, and he's gotten quite "hooked"! He'll love this service.
