Hello, I’m Astronomy magazine Senior Editor Michael Bakich. In this video, I’ll talk about easy-to-find targets in the 2013 spring sky.
You can locate all these sights with StarDome on our website at www.Astronomy.com/StarDome. If you need help navigating the StarDome, see Senior Editor Rich Talcott’s video “How to use Astronomy.com’s interactive star chart.”
I’ll start by helping the new observers out there find the main directions, which, for a beginner, can be a bit tricky at night.
