January 2024


Greetings Stargazers!

Well, it has been an altogether cloudy and rainy beginning of the new year here in SW Florida. We are under the effects of an El Nino oscillation in the Pacific which has affected our weather here in North America. There may be several cloudy nights instore for us in the next couple of months. However, we are hopeful here to try to take advantage of some clear evenings when we can!

Please remember, if your reservation night is cancelled due to clouds/rain, you can always reschedule for another night or receive a full refund!

The winter is an exciting season for astronomy with many interesting targets to note. This early January is the last chance to see Saturn in the evening sky before it dips down to low. We will have to look to see it again in the evening in the fall. We still have Jupiter high in the sky and bright as always. The most prominent constellation in the winter is Orion and it's superb Orion Nebula M42. We look forward to touring the stars with you!

Stay safe!
