M46/M47 in Binoculars

Stargazing with binoculars is a speedy way to see celestial objects in awesome detail. project nightflight has developed an astrophotography and image processing technique to show some deep-sky objects as they appear in binoculars. This way we would like to encourage stargazers to use their binoculars for finding their way around in the nightsky. For the simulation images we use HDR imaging technology and a special filter to make the final image look almost exactly as seen through a binocular. The field of view of our binocular simulations spans six degrees, which represents the typical 8x30 or 10x50 binos used... Read More...

The Star of New Year's Eve

Fireworks and celebrations, that's what many people associate with the coming of the New Year. But as the countdown is peaking and expectations are running high, there is yet another show going on in the sky. The brightest star visible from Earth reaches its highest point of its apparent path across the night sky. Sirius culminates around midnight on New Year's Eve. This is a phantastic coincidence. And, of course, this happens every year at midnight as the old year ends and the next year begins and is visible from almost everywhere on Earth. So, if the skies are clear... Read More...

Astronomy for the Filipino Youth

Astronomy compels us to look up to the skies, to wonder and to discover. The youth of today's generation will belong to the space generation; and last November 29, the Manila Street Astronomers decided to promote that fact to the grade 10 students of Quezon City Science High School. The group was invited to speak during the school's career orientation in order to inspire them to take interest in other subject fields such as astronomy and space sciences. Astronomy is relatively new in the Philippines with only two universities offering a degree program. Because of this I decided to give... Read More...
