See what's 'up' in the night sky.
Introduction
With weekly videos that share "what's up" in the night sky that almost anyone can see this week, Eyes on the Sky's goal is to educate about interesting objects and phenomena to see in the night sky, amateur astronomy in general with tips and tricks for observing, and how we call can take simple steps to reduce light pollution for better sleep, health, and stargazing.
