Each week, Astronomy magazine Senior Editor Michael E. Bakich, a master at explaining how to observe, posts a podcast about three objects or events you can see in the sky.
Spiral galaxy NGC 7678 is a nice deep-sky treat that disproves the notion that nothing lies within Pegasus’ Great Square. Look for NGC 7678 approximately 1.2° southeast of magnitude 4.4 Upsilon (υ) Pegasi.
