Penumbral Lunar Eclipse | Full Buck Moon 2020
Fireworks aren't the only light show on July 4th. Shortly after sunset, the Full Buck Moon (a traditional name for July's Full Moon) will pass through the outermost portion of the Earth's shadow, a subtle event called a penumbral lunar eclipse. Join Lowell Observatory educators at the Giovale Open Deck Observatory (https://lowell.edu/godo) at 8pm AZ/PT on Saturday, July 4, 2020, for a live stream of this penumbral lunar eclipse. While the Moon is progressing through the eclipse, we'll also conduct an Interactive Stargazing session, showcasing some celestial objects and then letting viewers choose which objects to see via YouTube's chat function. Moonrise in Flagstaff is at 7:41pm PDT, and sunset is at 7:44pm. The penumbral lunar eclipse begins at 8:07pm PDT and ends at 10:52pm. Maximum eclipse is at 9:29:51pm. Learn more about this eclipse here: https://youtu.be/Jwl7pdu9g2s. **The effect of this penumbral eclipse is very subtle and may not be visible by all viewers.**

David Scanlan Interviews Sir Patrick Moore - 7th February 2008 - Variable Stars
On the 7th February I was privileged to interview Sir Patrick Moore and ask him some questions about his work and thoughts on observing variable stars and what the future holds for variable star observers in the years to come. We met at his 15th Century house, Farthings, in Selsey, West Sussex, and the interview was held in his study where oh so many of his now world famous books were written on his old Woodstock typewriter.
Cosmic Coffee, Cup No. 14 | Interactive Stargazing and the Famed Starlink Image
Cosmic Coffee explores a different topic in astronomy or planetary science each week. This week, Lowell Observatory Director Dr. Jeff Hall speaks with Educator Victoria Girgis about the famed image she took of the first round of Starlink satellites passing through a photographic field of galaxies shortly after launch just over a year ago, and the observatory's program of interactive stargazing that made that image possible.

How to add a comet into Stellarium
New, bright comets are something most every amateur astronomer wants to see. But when and where a comet may be visible depends on an observer's location - can you see the comet where you are? If so, you'll want to know where it will show up so you can go to the best place to observe it. But adding a comet in Stellarium is... well, not terribly easy. In the video, David Fuller from Eyes on the Sky shows step-by-step how to import the orbital elements for a comet into Stellarium so you can see exactly where the comet will show up for your location.

Tonight's Sky: July
About this Video In July, find the Scorpius constellation to identify the reddish supergiant Antares, which will lead you to discover a trio of globular star clusters. Keep watching for space-based views of these densely packed, spherical collections of ancient stars, as well as three nebulas: the Swan Nebula, the Lagoon Nebula, and the Trifid Nebula. About this Series “Tonight’s Sky” is a monthly video of constellations you can observe in the night sky. The series is produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute, home of science operations for the Hubble Space Telescope, in partnership with NASA’s Universe of Learning. This is a recurring show, and you can find more episodes—and other astronomy videos—at https://hubblesite.org/resource-gallery/learning-resources/tonights-sky. This product is based on work supported by NASA under award numbers NNX16AC65A to the Space Telescope Science Institute, working in partnership with Caltech/IPAC, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, and Sonoma State University.

10 Black Superstars in Astronomy and Space Science that you should know about!
Welcome to my channel! I'm Dr Maggie Lieu and I make youtube videos about space & astronomy. In solidarity with the black lives matter movement and Juneteenth, I wanted to make a list of black astronomy and space role models, since during my entire 12 years in academia I really could not think of a single tenured Black Astronomy Professor. For myself, I know the huge importance role models can have on young people and their career choices, so by highlighting some here, I hope that it can encourage more BAME backgrounds into my field. A more diverse field is important for new ideas and therefore science progress. Extra reading:

Zooming-in to NGC 7027
This video zooms into the planetary nebula NGC 7027. The object had been slowly puffing away its mass in quiet, spherically symmetric or perhaps spiral patterns for centuries — until relatively recently when it produced a new cloverleaf pattern.
