Skylights: April 8 through April 14

Apr 8

So what's up in the night sky this week besides the Leo Triplet?  The sky is a bit slower this week, but this is when many amateur astronomers attempt a Messier Marathon - trying to see all 110 of Messier's 'non comet' objects in a single night.  Want to try it?  Here's a planner for it.  I've never done it myself, and it's not easy, but it can be done if you know where to look for all of them.  Even if you don't, the search for many of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster galaxies is an amateur astronomer's observing paradise!  So many galaxies in such a small area of sky.  

What else is happening?  The Moon is new on the 10th, which is why deep sky observing is ideal now.  Next weekend, the Moon rejoins the evening sky and skirts by Jupiter in the evening sky.  And all week long, you can spot the double star Algieba in Leo - even if you can't see the Leo Triplet or Virgo Cluster galaxies!  But you will not a lot of magnification, as they are tight double to split.

M44 and M67 can still be seen near the meridian, this perhaps being a better week to go hunting for them on the loooooong star hop that it takes to track them down from Leo.

For more information on what you can find and see in the night sky every week, see the homepage of Eyes on the Sky.  Light pollution reduction begins with you, and you can take simple steps to reduce night sky glow without compromising safety.

Re: Skylights: April 8 through April 14

The Speedy style will come in two sizes, 30cm and 35cm but not all countries will carry both sizes. If my memory serves me right from the info card the sales assistant showed, size 30cm is only available in Japan, North America, China (Hong Kong not included) and another region which I can't remember and size 35cm will be available in Asia, South America and Europe.

WinoForever indeed!I think the odd nature of the incident causes it to be an indispensable part of her career. It's a man-bites-dog situation, whereas we virtually expect celebrities to drink and drive and use drugs.

That being said she did cause others harm. Any criminal charges drain government resources, which are funded by taxpayers.

It’s not said how big of fines Google could face, since regulators from each of the countries still have yet to make their decisions on what to do.

Mobile users are addicted to interacting with others through mobile apps. To have that enabled across the entire operating system is something that should attract quite a few people.

The worst case scenario is that every country decides to take action and fine Google a good amount of cash, which will add up when you take into account that there are six countries issuing fines.
