Embrace the darkness! With the new book by Dean Regas, 100 Things to See in the Night Sky, you will impress your Trailblazergirl-friends on your next camping trip with your stargazing knowledge! In an easy to follow format, this book focuses on the night sky in the mid-northern latitudes (e.g., between 25 and 55 degrees north latitude). Regas identifies stars, constellations, asterisms (recognizable shape of stars), planets, nebulas, or satellites and provides background information on them and how to locate them. Most of the objects are identified as “easy” to locate and can be seen with the naked eye Those noted as “moderate” or “difficult” will be easier to see if you are in an area that is free from light pollution and with the help of binoculars or a small telescope. Right now, the winter night sky boasts some of the brightest stars and constellations, so bundle up, grab your book, and head outside on a clear night to view Orion, Taurus, Canis Major and Minor, Gemini, and more!
