#TheNightSkyAtHome #LookUpTogether

Share the night sky from your home with the #nightskyathome, #lookuptogether initiative. Here’s how it works: 

1 – Look up at the night sky anytime after sunset, or before sunrise from your backyard, porch, window, or rooftop.

2 – If possible, identify bright stars, constellations, or planets in the night sky

3 – Photograph what you see with the equipment you have. Try different techniques. You can hold a smartphone or digital camera up to a pair of binoculars, or use a camera mount on a telescope. 

4 – Post your image to Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter with the hashtags: #NightSkyAtHome and #LookUpTogether

5 – IDA and TWAN will reshare your photos during International Dark Sky Week

6 – Bonus! Make it a family activity or go low-tech by drawing a picture of what you see in the night sky. Snap a picture of your drawing and post to social media with the hashtags #NightSkyAtHome and #LookUpTogether

TONIGHT after #sunset , 3rdApril 2020. Looking at TONIGHT after #sunset , 3rdApril 2020. Looking at west side . The #Planet #Venus (also named as the evening star) , has approached the #Pleiades (Also named as the seven sisters or #M45 ). It’s also knows as #Subaru in #Japan , yeah that car brand name logo which has the Pleiades stars with blue background representing the night sky. 
I photographed the convergence today from #Muscat the capital city of #Oman by using Sony A7 with 400mm focal length lens 
This is a #magnificent view. Venus is about 1000 times brighter than the individual stars of the Pleiades. Therefore, when you look at the conjunction with the unaided eye, you mainly see Venus. Try using binoculars. Even a small amount of magnification reveals the delicate star cluster surrounding the bright planet. It'll look like a #supernova has gone off among the Seven Sisters.

There is plenty to see, even from cities and suburbs. Planet Venus is currently a very bright point in the west at dusk. Photographed a few years ago in a small town in Germany, Venus appears in a similar position next to the Pleiades star cluster.

One of the many magical things about the East End One of the many magical things about the East End is the ability to see stars at night. Pre-pandemic, Group for the East End would lead monthly full moon hikes under clear evening skies, talking about our land and the wildlife that come alive after the sun sets.

"Artificial light at night has revolutionized the way we live and work outdoors, but it has come at a price. When used indiscriminately, outdoor lighting can disrupt wildlife, impact human health, waste money and energy, contribute to climate change, and block our view of the universe." - idadarksky 

The Group has proudly joined the #NorthForkDarkSkyCoalition to raise awareness of the importance of dark skies and urge Town of Southold to adopt a resolution to take part in the upcoming International Dark Sky "Turn Your Lights Off" challenge in April 2021 to reduce light pollution right here in Southold. Our community has the ability to combat this type of pollution and continue protecting our gorgeous night skies for years to come.

Sharing this in celebration of International Dark Sharing this in celebration of International Dark Sky Week, which is held during the week of the new moon in April. We are fortunate to have dark skies in northern Michigan, provided you get outta town. Don’t go to the dunes though; the trails and parking lots etc are closed. But, do get outside, give your eyes a few minutes to adjust, and look up. It’s a calming experience that always makes me feel small and yet connected to the universe. We could all use more of that, especially now. 💙🌌

International Dark Sky week may have officially en International Dark Sky week may have officially ended yesterday, but here is one more photo - and one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. I took this at the end of a night of astrophotgraphy, and actually had not been planning a photo like this. Spur-of-the-moment before I packed up the camera and tripod, I asked Sean to stand between me/the camera and the Milky Way. There are a few entertaining photos of him holding his hand out - without me in the frame - as I made him move around to get positioned just right. Then I set the timer and came to stand in the frame. We stood as still as possible for 20 seconds - which was hard! We were lucky to have a car’s headlights light Zion's cliffs while we stood in the quiet dark. A good friend of ours designed our business logo based on this photo - link in profile to see. We also have greeting cards of the Milky Way in this location (without people) for sale in our Etsy shop. 📷: Alison 📍 Land of the Southern Paiute people
