(Posted 10 January 2017) The February – April 2017 issue of my ‘Amazing Space!’ student newsletter / A3 poster can now be downloaded from this page.
- Mars and Jupiter finder charts (no telescope required).
- Information on the 11 February 2017 occultation of the star Regulus by the Moon (binoculars recommended due to brightness of the Moon)
- Constellation finder charts (Orion and Southern Cross)
- February – April 2017 Moon phase information
Background: The planet finder charts were prepared for an observer based on the Gold Coast, Queensland. They will be useful for observers across the Eastern states of Australia.
